Abstract

We undertook a floristic study of Highland Heights Community Park and undeveloped adjacent property, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, locating 403 taxa of vascular plants belonging to 249 genera and 87 families. The study site is a large suburban park containing a mixture of wetland and non-wetland communities. A wet meadow within the site supports a diverse flora and is currently the only known locality in Ohio for Solidago puberula. Also this meadow represents the sole location in Cuyahoga County for Rhynchospora capitellata and Hypericum gentianoides.
