    Hi, I am looking for a photo of Melilotus albus to use in a field guide to the wildflowers of Georgia. If you would be willing to donate one of your images, please contact me at LCHAFIN@UGA.EDU. All proceeds from the sale of the guide will be used to support the Plant Conservation Program at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. Thank you for considering, Linda Chafin, Conservation Botanist
