A frequent wildflower of both coastal and inland scrub and sandhills in the central and southeastern peninsula, plus Franklin & Wakulla Counties of the panhandle. Also found in Long County in southeastern Georgia.

The genus name honors English botanist Samuel Dale (1659-1739) and the species is named for Wiliam T. Feay, M.D. (1803-1879) who collected in the southern United States.
