From Flora of Indiana (1940) by Charles C. Deam
A rare plant throughout its general range. I have found it only twice. Once I found it in the detritus of a sandstone cliff along Little Blue River at the site of the old Carnes Mill, about 2 miles southeast of Grantsburg, in Crawford County. There are two vigorous colonies here, growing in the shade of the cliff and surrounding trees. I found it again in the detritus at the base of a cliff of the Ohio River, about 2 miles south of Fredonia, in Crawford County. This station is just south of a picnic ground 2 miles south of Fredonia. Here is a small colony, growing in the dense shade of the cliff and woods.
