This paper deals with the flora of a dune area in Muscatine and Louisa counties in Iowa known locally as the Sand Mound, the only region of its kind nearer than the sand hills of Nebraska to the west and the dunes of Lake Michigan to the east. Shimek2 in 1893 listed the plants of the Iowa Sand Lands including the Sand Mound, but no one has actually determined the flora of the large dune. It is the purpose of this paper to learn as far as possible what plants grow on the mound including its margins.
