Solidago petiolaris Aiton var. petiolaris . Phen: Late Aug-Nov. Hab: Upland forests and woodlands. Dist: NC, SC, GA, AL, and MS south to n. FL.
Origin/Endemic status: Endemic
Taxonomy Comments: The eastern component is sometimes treated as S. petiolaris (sensu stricto) and the western as S. angusta Torrey & A. Gray. Alternatively these are recognized as the varietal rank (as here), or combined entirely. Var. angusta (Torrey & A. Gray) A. Gray and var. wardii (Britton) Fernald are Ozarkian and more western (Nesom 2008a). See Semple et al. (2017b).
