Ceanothus americanus Linnaeus var. intermedius (Pursh) Torrey & A. Gray. Southeastern New Jersey Tea, Southeastern Ceanothus. Phen: May-Jun; Jun-Jul. Hab: Longleaf pine sandhills, dry sandy woodlands and forests, rocky openings around granitic or quartzitic rocks in the Piedmont. Dist: NJ (or possibly MA) south to c. peninsular FL, west to LA, mostly on the Coastal Plain, but disjunct inland to sandy soils around outcrops of siliceous rocks.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: The recognition of infraspecific taxa in the variable C. americanus is uncertain; var. intermedius may either represent ecological forms, or the variation may be too clinal to make taxonomic recognition rewarding. However, material sorts relatively easily, with some intermediates from the Piedmont; varietal status seems provisionally appropriate.

Synonymy: = C, F, G, Tat, Brizicky (1964a), Coile (1988a), Fross & Wilken (2006); = Ceanothus intermedius Pursh – S, S13; < Ceanothus americanus L. – FNA12, K1, K3, K4, RAB, Tn, Va, W, WH3
