Beitr. Bot.1: 39, plate 1, fig. 3. 1842
Phenology: Flowering late Jul–Sep.
Habitat: Edges, open spaces and thickets, deciduous or mixed pine-deciduous woods
Elevation: 0–600 m
Of conservation concern.
The ranges of Agrimonia microcarpa and A. pubescens overlap from North Carolina through Arkansas. Only rarely do populations of either species occur in the range of the other species beyond that contact area. Plants occurring within the range of A. pubescens that resemble A. microcarpa but lack one or more of the above characteristics have been included in A. pubescens. Observations of plants of A. pubescens grown from seed in the garden at Northern Illinois University suggest that some, if not most, plants resembling A. microcarpa are young second-year plants or are under stress. Ambiguous identifications are most clearly resolved when mature fruits are present.
