Frequent to common throughout the state. It grows in wet or moist soil and is found mostly in alluvial areas along streams and ditches, in low places in woodland, and along roadsides. The upper surface of the leaves is usually glabrous or somewhat scabrous or rarely with a few hairs on the veins. I have, however, a few specimens with the upper surface of the blades softly pubescent. I think these plants should have a distinguishing name. They are from Fayette, Marion, Starke, and Warrick Counties.
