Coefficient of Conservatism:
Coefficient of Wetness:
Sandy, gravelly, or rocky roadsides, fields, and disturbed ground. First collected in 1942 in Ottawa Co.
The fresh pubescence, besides being sparser than in our other species (except V. blattaria), is rather white. The species is easily recognized by its smaller flowers and much-branched inflorescence of slender stalks. A few specimens are a little more pubescent than usual, perhaps showing some introgression from another species, presumably V. thapsus.
