- Lobelia puberula Michx.
- Two geographically correlated varieties, differing in leaf and pubescence characters, were described by Fernald: var. puberula of the Coastal Plain and Piedmont, and var. simulans Fern. of the Appalachians. It is not clear how these putative vars. relate to Virginia material; they are not formally recognized at this time, but are worthy of further study.
- Wet to dry forests, old fields, clearings, and roadsides. Frequent in the Coastal Plain, Piedmont, and mountains of sw. Virginia, north to Giles, Pulaski, and Carroll counties.
