Originally collected along Pughs Run in 1978 by Mo Stevens, who considered the population "of questionable persistence."

Limestone outcrops, stream banks, and weedy forests along Pughs Run, above its confluence with the Shenandoah River near Woodstock (Shenandoah Co.), well established here (Jake Hughes, pers. comm.); on 80-year old church wall in Virginia Beach City; also reported from Fairfax Co.
