This is a rare endemic wildflower of sandhills found only in the central part of the Florida peninsula.
The flowers form in crowded terminal clusters somewhat globular shaped. Maturing from the bottom up they are whitish, turning rose-purple on long pedicels. The individual flowers are 1.25cm (~1/2 in.) across with four paddle-shaped petals and six long stamens. The fruit is a thin pod 7-8cm (~3 in.) long called a silique. The leaves are heart-shaped and clasp the stem.
More information can be found at the Florida Natural Areas Inventory Warea amplexifolia page.
