Florida Keys History and Distribution:
Reported in 1884 by J. Cosmo Melvill for the island of Key West. Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for hammocks from the upper Keys to the lower Keys, but these plants were probably persisting from cultivation. Cultivated nearly throughout the Florida Keys.
