It was originally thought to be confined to the state of Louisiana, but it appears that it may well grow as far north as Chattanooga, Tennessee, where it co-exists with T cuneatum. It is a more refined plant with a clearly distinct narrower petal shape but may well intergrade with T cuneatum over some of it's range. The range of petal colors is similar and the leaves are very attractively mottled.
