This little treasure called "Self-Heal" or "Heal-All" is among the unusual plants native to Arkansas that are on the brink of being bulldozed to make way for parking spaces and apartment buildings.

These are a few of the summer views of plants present on wetland near Town Branch of the West Fork of the White River in Fayetteville, Arkansas. —LDH
