Only about 200 individuals plants have been documented at fewer than 50 sites. Restricted to an extremely narrow range and set of habitat conditions. Fire suppression and conversion of streamheads to fishing ponds, farm impoundments, and other uses has severely reduced the available habitat. Most populations known extant are on properties that are periodically managed with prescribed fire or where periodic mowing takes place along rights-of-way. Use of herbicides is a concern for populations in rights-of-way.
