Florida Keys History and Distribution:
First collected in 1834 or 1835 by Reverend Alva Bennett on the island of Key West. Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for pinelands, hammocks, open sandy places and disturbed sites from the upper Keys to the lower Keys. We consider this native and extant throughout the Florida Keys.
