Where is Parker's Pipewort (Eriocaulon parkeri)
located in the wild?
Eriocaulon parkeri typically grows on firm, mostly submerged mud or silt-covered gravel or cobbles of open mudflats and tidal marshes in fresh to slightly brackish tidal rivers and estuaries. Plants appear to tolerate a variety of water chemistries (including high to low conductivity and fresh to brackish conditions). Plants occupy portions of the tidal zone that are submerged by daily tides and may be subject to scouring and other disturbance. In the northern portion of its range, Parker's pipewort is associated with common three-square, annual wildrice, common water-purslane, estuary beggar ticks, Eaton's beggar ticks, and Atlantic mudwort. Closer to the center of its distribution in southern New England and the mid-Atlantic, Parker's pipewort is associated with annual wild rice, common water-purslane, common arrowhead, pickerel weed, Eaton's beggar ticks, pygmy weed, golden club, and arrowleaf (Haines 2001).
Eriocaulon parkeri is currently reported from Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, North Carolina, Virginia, and Maine, as well as Quebec and New Brunswick in Canada.
