Hairy Rattleweed

This perennial legume was once believed to be extinct—then someone found it growing on Rayonier land! The endangered plant is now found in three counties in Georgia, growing in open pine flatwoods. It’s recognizable by the dense cobweb-like hairs that cover it, which is how it got its name. Some of the land where it grew in Rayonier forests has now been placed in conservation: Georgia’s Conservation Fund purchased just over 6,000 acres of its habitat in 2021.
