a native, herbaceous perennial found along the coasts of Florida. It grows on the ocean side of the dunes down to the high tide mark forming dense stands close to the ground.
I would say this is the predominant plant feature of the Coastal Prairie in the extreme southern coast of the Everglades National Park. It forms a thigh high ground cover in vast numbers across these tidal/marshy fields.
