In this isolated locale in northern Alabama, S. oreophila was maintaining a rather modest colony of no more than 100 plants, crowded around a mountain spring, seemingly rather over-grown by surrounding shrubbery. It was early May, and I counted only a few scapes of flower buds needing another few weeks for full blossom. This appears to be another species in which pollinators are bothered by functional traps.
