In accordance with the CPC and USFS Rare Plant Seed Banking Agreement, on August 7, 2019, Sheila Murray from The Arboretum at Flagstaff made a conservation seed collection of Potentilla arizonica from behind the main Forest Service office building in Kaibab National Forest, in a wash downstream from Bennett Spring. Only five of the population’s 20 individuals were reproductively mature, but all produced copious seed. Sheila collected an estimated 2100 seeds from these five individuals.  Seed was split and banked between The Arboretum at Flagstaff and the National Laboratory for Genetic Resources Preservation in Fort Collins, CO.
