Other Comments: In Granville County, NC, it is associated (on glades of diabase, a mafic rock) with other taxa with affinities to midwestern glades and prairies: Solidago jacksonii, Solidago ptarmicoides, Baptisia aberrans, Symphyotrichum depauperatum, Silphium terebinthinaceum, Parthenium auriculatum, Ruellia humilis, and others. S. ozarkanus, S. neglectus, and S. vaginiflorus form a still very poorly understood complex.
