Agarista populifolia (Lamarck) Judd. Agarista, Pipestem. Phen: Apr-May; Sep-Oct. Hab: Blackwater swamps, hydric hammocks, marly spring runs and seepage ravines. Dist: E. SC (or se. NC?) south to ne. and c. peninsular FL.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Other Comments: Reported for several locations in s. AL, likely escaped (Diamond & Woods 2009). A specimen at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (NCU) is labeled as coming from a nursery, originally taken from plants in a swamp in Columbus County, NC. The record is plausible and if accepted adds the species to the state's native flora.
