2c. ssp. radicans

Leaflets narrowly to broadly ovate, the margins entire, the undersurface mostly glabrous or with small tufts of hairs in the vein axils, the undersides of leaflets with tufts of hairs in the vein axils. Fruits minutely roughened or with sparse, minute papillae or hairs.

Uncommon, known thus far only from a single collection from Scott County (eastern U.S. west to Illinois and Texas; Canada). Sand savannas.

Plants attributed to ssp. radicans were first collected in Missouri in 1992. At the only site known to date, it occurs in a mixed population with plants of ssp. negundo and T. pubescens in deep, sandy soil. Plants of all three taxa occur in this degraded sand savanna as low, spreading shrubs.
