Native to the Florida Scrub, including sand pine scrub, scrubby flatwoods, and high dune ridges. Likes dry habitat. Growing and transplanting ability unknown. Sadly, this plant is endangered as its habitat is being destroyed for development. This plant grows in my area in some preserves as well as in other areas throughout Palm Beach County, FL.

UPDATE - In total distribution, this plant grows in scrub habitat and high dune ridges (sand pine scrub and scrub) on the east coast of Florida from Volusia county southward to Dade county, zones 9a to 10b.
