Florida Keys History and Distribution:
Not reported for the Florida Keys by John Kunkel Small in 1913. Apparently not observed in the Florida Keys until 1960, when reported for what is now Dry Tortugas National Park (Reimus & Robertson, 1997). Doubtfully native to the Florida Keys - strictly a weed of disturbed sites.
