Comments
Many specimens of P. setaceum are not identified as to variety. Based on specimens at VPI annotated by Dr. R.L. Wilbur (DUKE) in 2015, the most frequent subspecific category in Virginia is var. mühlenbergii, while var. ciliatifolium and var. setaceum are widespread but much less often encountered. Further study of herbarium material is needed.
Habitat
Dry to, less often, mesic habitats, including woodlands, clearings, interdune swales, meadows, fields, and roadsides.
