Phacelia dubia (Linnaeus) Trelease var. georgiana McVaugh. Phen: Apr-May; Jun. Hab: Granitic flatrocks. Dist: Var. georgiana ranges from GA west to ec. AL, in the Piedmont
Origin/Endemic status: Endemic
Other Comments: It has sometimes been attributed to SC, and Levy found plants in SC which morphologically resemble var. georgiana, but he concluded that this ‘imitator’ genotype was largely sterile when bred with var. georgiana. See var. dubia for additional discussion.
