Hypericum exile is endemic to the flatwoods of the western and central panhandle of Florida. It blooms in the spring. The Florida Sands St. Johnswort has 5 petals and sepals with needle-like mature leaves. It is slender and wand-like, mostly unbranched with the rough upper stems being metalic-silvery.
