Map incomplete at the present time, pending herbarium work needed to fully map the two vars. of Solidago sempervirens. See species map for Solidago sempervirens. Var. mexicana ranges along the Coastal Plain from Maryland to Texas, and south into Mexico, overlapping the southern end of the var. sempervirens range in Maryland, Virginia, and ne. North Carolina.
Oligohaline to mesohaline tidal marshes, tidal swamps, maritime swamps, and dune grasslands. Frequent in the maritime and lower estuarine zones of the Coastal Plain. Var. mexicana is the more widely distributed but less numerous of this species' two varieties in Virginia; and, unlike the typical variety, it is rather strongly associated with tidal and maritime wetlands.
