LIATRIS MUCRONATA DC. f. Tharpii Shinners, f. nov. Corollis albis. TYPE : abundant on limestone prairie about five miles north of Austin at Walnut Creek, B. C. Tharp & Barton H. Warnock 45-35, Oct. 3, 1945. Color forms ordinarily are scarcely worth the trouble of giving Latin names. This one is a striking variant of an endemic which is also commonly cultivated, and has itself been introduced into cultivation. It seems desirable to assign a name to a plant with excellent horticultural possibilities, and appropriate to name it in honor of the man who brought it into cultivation.
