This plant is usually one and a half to four inches high and so minute as to be easily overlooked. It has been reported from Floyd and Jefferson Counties. Where I have found it, it is always a common to abundant plant. I believe it to be local, however, because of its habitat, for it apparently prefers a minimacid soil. It is found in bare places in open woods, usually associated with black oak, in bare places in pastured woods, along paths in woods, and in abandoned fields.
