Rounded Global Status Rank: G5 - Secure

Reasons: Widespread from Texas across the southeastern United States, north to Iowa and Maine, and in Canada in Quebec (historical) and Ontario (Kartesz 1999). Occurs in a variety of habitats including sandy fields, prairies, barrens, rock outcrops, open woods, and disturbed areas (Voss 1996, Rhoads and Block 2000, Weakley 2000). Common in the southeast and much of the northeast, only becoming rare in Indiana, Michigan, and Canada (Haines and Vining 1998, Rhoads and Block 2000, Weakley 2000).
