I found the following comment on your database when reading about Hypericum ascyron:
Comments: The scattered distribution of this plant in Ontario is thought to match historical aboriginal encampments. (Ontario Native Plants 2002)
Can you give me more information on where to obtain the article referenced as Ontario Native Plants 2002?? I can't seem to find any reference to this myself.
Your time is appreciated,
