Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Floridian On Dec 29, 2004, Floridian from Lutz, FL (Zone 9b) wrote:

Herbaceous perennial with smooth stems and alternate, sessile, linear to narrowly lanceolate leaves. The bright pinkish purple flowers are few to numerous in open clusters and bloom all year. Its natural habitat is pinelands and prairie edges of Florida and the northern Bahamas.
Due to encroaching development this plant is on the Florida Endangered Species List
