Florida Keys History and Distribution:
Not reported for the Florida Keys by John Kunkel Small in 1913. First collected in 1951 by J.D. Dickson III (s.n., FTG)
on Big Pine Key, where assumed native to low pinelands. Although somewhat weedy, we consider this native and extant from the upper Keys to the lower Keys.
