Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Euthamia graminifolia (L.) Nutt.
See also E. graminifolia var. graminifolia, which is essentially restricted to the mountains. Piedmont and Coastal Plain plants with hirtellous or short-villous hairs on leaf undersides, upper stem, and branches have been called var. nuttallii (Greene) W. Stone. Note that in his recent comprehensive revision of Euthamia (Phytoneuron 34-2021, 1-182), Nesom treats the two vars. as species. However, because the pubescence character is variable and the plants seem to grade into the typically glabrate plants called var. graminifolia, we are retaining the varietal treatment pending further study of our material. Map is based on Nesom’s (2021) map, with some modifications based on Virginia herbarium data.
Mesic to wet clearings, bottomland fields, meadows, roadsides, riverbanks, seasonally exposed bars, and interdune swales. Frequent to common in the Coastal Plain, se. and n. Piedmont; rare in the sw. Piedmont and n. mountains (at low elevations).
