Reasons: Stillingia sylvatica has a fairly large range from Colorado south to Texas and east to Virginia and Florida. This species is common in parts of its range such as the Carolinas and Florida. Subspecies Stillingia sylvatica ssp. sylvatica is widespread, and subspecies Stillingia sylvatic ssp. tenuis is endemic to southern Florida. Roots of this species are collected from the wild for medicinal use and are commercially available. Currently, use of this herb is relatively small, but demand is reportedly increasing and it has historically been widely popular.
