Lobelia boykinii

Federal Status: Under review

Project lead: Patrick McMillan

Boykin’s lobelia is a perennial plant in the family Campanulaceae. It is currently known from fewer than 70 occurrences in South Carolina. There are large populations at Ditch Bay, Grays Bay, and Florida Bay. It is a rhizomatous plant and it might resurface after fire removes woody vegetation from the landscape. Ex situ collections of this species are a priority, as are surveys done during the May-August flowering period.
