A common vine of sandhills, flatwoods, hammock and thickets throughout nearly all of Florida. The range extends through the southeastern coastal states from North Carolina to Louisiana plus Arkansas.
The leaves of this catbriar are variable in shape, but have a thick and tightly revolute margin closely paralleled by a vein. Other factors that help distinguish this species from the other Smilax are slightly raised veins on the lower surface of the leaves and the pinkish color of the lower stems.
