- Map incomplete at this time, pending a full inventory of Virginia herbarium specimens. See comments under composite map of V. pubescens sensu lato.
- Rich, well-drained floodplain forests, river-slope forests, and rich cove forests, typically on fertile soils weathered or deposited from mafic or calcareous substrates. Frequent in the mountains (locally common in some areas), infrequent in the Piedmont, rare in the Coastal Plain. This var. and var. scabriusculum grow in similar habitats, and often together, but var. pubescens is more restricted to the richest sites and is less common overall.
