Swida foemina (P. Miller) Rydberg. Southern Swamp Dogwood. Phen: Mar-Jun; Jul-Oct. Hab: Swamps, streambanks, marshes, alluvial forests. Dist: DE south to s. FL, west to TX, and north in the interior to TN, s. IN, s. IL, AR, and se. OK.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: Although the name Cornus foemina P. Miller predates C. stricta Lamarck, it is very unclear what plant was intended by that name (the description is very obscure and no type is available), so C. foemina should arguably be rejected as a nomen dubium. Until and unless such an action is taken, it is arguably best to use C. foemina, the course followed here.
