CAYUGA FLORA (1926) NOTES: Open dry gravelly, chiefly neutral, soils; frequent. May 15-June. N.w. of Enfield Falls; junction of Inlet and Enfield Creek; near mouth of Enfield Glen; railroad ballast n.e. of Buttermilk Falls; railroad s. of Ithaca (D.); flats near C. U. boathouse; C.U. campus; Cascadilla woods, abundant, 1885 (D.); near Esty Glen; near McKinneys (D.). Me. to B.C., southw. to Fla. and Mex., including the Atlantic Coastal Plain. The early rarity of this species in the Cayuga Lake Basin and its recent increase in frequency suggest that it may not be native here.
