Apocynaceae

CAYUGA FLORA (1926) NOTES: Marshes and stream banks, in alluvial soil ; common. June 25-Aug. 10. N. B. to Sask., southw. to W. Va., Term., La., and Colo. ; occasional or rare on the Coastal Plain. The var. pulchra (Ehrh.) Pers. was said by Dudley to occur " rarely." This was probably an error, as it has not been seen in recent years, and is, in fact, a plant of the Coastal Plain unlikely to be found in central N. Y. Forms of A. incarnata with the flowers pale, like those of var. puIchra, are occasional.
