Florida Keys History and Distribution:
First collected between 1838 and 1853 by John Loomis Blodgett on the island of Key West. Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for coastal sand dunes and hammocks from the upper Keys to the lower Keys. We consider this native to the upper Keys and the lower Keys, but we have no records for the middle Keys.
