Racemed Milkwort is an upright perennial or biennial. Its
preferred habitat is dry pine and oak woodlands, and dune areas.
Distribution is throughout the Escambia region.
The open racemes of this milkwort are similar to those
of P. grandiflora, but the narrower wings and the fringed
petals help to identify the species. Each flower is about 1/4
inch broad. The loose raceme are well-spaced and distinctly colored
(rose-purple to white). Each flower petal has a tiny tiny fringe
on the margin. The largest sepal is twice as long as wide. Flowers
occur in the summer.
The leaves are alternate on the stem, to 7 mm wide. The
margins are revolute and well distributed on the stem.
