Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Amsonia tabernaemontana Walt. var tabernaemontana
A narrow-leaved Amsonia, often called var. A. tabernaemontana var. salicifolia (Pursh) Woodson or A. salicifolia Pursh, occurs in states to the south and southwest of Virginia. It has been alleged to occur in Virginia, but an examination of images of all specimens from the state on the SERNEC portal indicates that all of our material is typical A. tabernaemontana.
Floodplain forests, mesic slope forests, and low or alluvial clearings. Infrequent in the s. Piedmont and inner Coastal Plain, from the James River south.
