Comments
North American plants are often distinguished from European ssp. effusus as ssp. solutus (Fern. & Wieg.) Hamet-Ahti. Several other infraspecific taxa have been attributed to Virginia and are worthy of additional study. Because Virginia herbarium material has generally not been identified to ssp. or var., a map is available only for J. effusus, sensu lato (in the broad sense).
Habitat
In a wide range of open and forested wet habitats, natural and disturbed. Frequent to common throughout.
Native Status
Native
