One New Design and a Reprint for 2014:
Coral Bean: This striking plant, coral bean (Erythrina herbacea), is a large herbaceous perennial in the legume family. It grows in sandy soils of the Coastal Plain in the southeastern U.S. and is rare in southern Arkansas. The bright red to hot pink tubular flowers are adapted for pollination by ruby-throated hummingbirds and the red seeds have been used as beads. A must-have, show-stopper of a shirt!
Logo: A reprint of this popular design simply features a breast patch of the ANPS logo. The logo, designed by ANPS member Susie Dunn, features a pale purple coneflower and the Society’s name and initials in green lettering.
Four designs still in stock:
Antler: Imagine strolling in a rich, moist forest in the spring and stumbling upon a shed deer antler nestled among lush Christmas fern, ebony spleenwort, blooming wild ginger, and the exotic-looking green dragon. Perfect shirt for the guys! Irises: Four of Arkansas’ native irises on display! Enjoy the beautiful colors of southern blue flag, copper iris, dwarf iris, and crested iris. Silky Camellia: One of the rarest shrubs in Arkansas all decked out in gorgeous white blooms. Silky camellia is native to the southern Atlantic and Gulf Coastal Plains, but is only known in Arkansas from the Camden area in Ouachita County. Indian Pipe: A positively spooky find on the dark, rich forest floor, Indian pipe, also known as ghost plant or corpse plant, contains no chlorophyll of its own and gets nutrients by parasitizing fungi that are in turn connected to tree roots.
