Hab: Longleaf pine sandhills, dry sandy woodlands, other dry sandy soils. Dist: Se. VA south to s. FL, west to e. LA, mostly on the Coastal Plain, but farther inland southward.

Taxonomy Comments: Our species is allied to C. urens of Mexico, Central America, and n. South America, and is sometimes treated as a variety of it. Substantial variation in leaf shape, habitat and likely other characters suggest that several taxa may be currently subsumed here.
