GENUS INDEX

GENUS CODE: BRICK
GENUS SCIENTIFIC: Brickellia
GENUS AUTHORITY: Elliott
GENUS COMMON: Brickellbush
GENUS SUMMARY: A genus of about 100-110 species, herbs and shrubs, primarily of sw. North America and Mexico south into Central America. Kuhnia should be included within a broadly circumscribed Brickellia (Schilling et al. 2015; King & Robinson 1987; Shinners 1971). In a molecular analysis (Schilling et al. 2015), B. cordifolia is basalmost in a clade that makes up Brickellia s.s., while B. eupatorioides is in a clade that corresponds to the formerly recognized Kuhnia.

Plant Sale Text: False Boneset is really one of the more interesting of our native Southeastern asters. It has narrow dark-green leaves that compliment, rather than overwhelm, the burgundy hue of its long stems. The most curious thing about False Boneset is its flower. The small heads of creamy-white disc flowers open in the early evening and close by mid-day, presumably an adaptation for nighttime pollination by moths and other nocturnal insects.

PHENOLOGY: Jun-Oct.
HABITAT: Dry slopes, shale barrens, dry woodlands, thickets.
COMMENTS: NJ west to IN, south to c. peninsular FL and se. TX. In addition to var. eupatorioides, B. eupatorioides includes several other varieties, of more western distribution. Var. texana (Shinners) Shinners [= var. ozarkana (Shinners) Shinners] has the outer phyllaries prolonged into setae, nearly or fully as long as the inner phyllaries, and should be considered a possibility for our area, in dry open habitats with prairie or midwestern affinities; it is known from as far eastward as AR, MO, and s. IL.
