On the east slope of Pigeon Mountain in northwest Georgia--our only known
location for the plant--it appears that virtually all of the plants have
reproduced asexually.  They nearly all ocur on a downstream slope on an
ephemeral stream that regularly has large waterflows.  The branches are
quite brittle and break off easily, and then root readily.  In examining
many plants, few fruits are encountered.  Seems that this population would
have little genetic variability.
