Lobelia spicata Lam. var spicata
Map is very incomplete at present, pending the extensive herbarium work needed to map the three vars. fully. See full species map for Lobelia spicata. Var. spicata is more northern than the other two vars. and its status is not well known. It appears to intergrade with var. leptostachys in the mountains, but more study of these two taxa are needed.
Dry-mesic to dry forests, woodlands, and clearings. More herbarium work is needed to sort out the distribution and abundance of this taxon in Virginia. Most records are from the s. Piedmont and mountains. McVaugh (1936) depicts its range as generally more northern.
