This rare plant has a very limited range in the Florida Panhandle. Only 3 colonies are known. Endemic to that area, they have been overcollected from the bogs and wetlands they inhabit.

The 6 petaled yellow flowers are green below, and turn completely green when the fruit is ripening. The grassy foliage is rather stiff.
