Neutral gooley On Jan 31, 2009, gooley from Hawthorne, FL (Zone 8b) wrote:

No personal experience. Native of southern Georgia, northern Florida, and into adjacent parts of Alabama and South Carolina. Also called Ogeechee-lime for sour fruits that have been used as substitute for limes and for making preserves. Popular native plant for north Florida: one planted at the University of Florida by one Tom Petty during his stint as a groundskeeper there is now officially the Tom Petty tree (he didn't attend UF, but he was raised in Gainesville). Seems a tough little tree on or near its native turf.

Regional...

This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
