Hedyotis australis W.H. Lewis & D.M. Moore; Hedyotis crassifolia var. micrantha Shinners
Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Houstonia micrantha (Shinners) Terrell
This tiny, white-flowered bluet, native of the south-central states, appeared initially rather suddenly in the Williamsburg area in Spring, 2012, well north of its previous northeastern limit in Georgia. Multiple stations, some with many individuals, reappearing now for several years, suggest it is locally established and now spreading.
Grassy places, cultivated fields, roadsides and trails. Locally frequent in James City, Prince George, and Surry counties, and Virginia Beach City; undoubtedly occurring undetected elsewhere in se. Virginia.
