Most records for this species in southeastern Virginia counties appear to represent native populations. Other records represent escapes of the "macrostachya" variant.
Swamp forests, wet forest borders and fencerows. Rare as a native in the s. and c. Coastal Plain; infrequent as an escape from cultivation throughout, often in urban areas and around old home sites.
