Boise sand-verbena (Abronia mellifera var. pahoveorum)

This species is a newly recognized variety and of conservation concern in Idaho. It is a very charismatic plant with large white pompoms of mildly fragrant, night-blooming flowers. An anonymous collector in 1911 called the Abronia “quite common on sandy slopes” in Boise, but now it is seldom encountered.
