Native to some areas in the Appalachian Mountains from southwest Pennsylvania, west Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, a spot in northeast Kentucky and a spot in south Ohio. A rare plant in landscaping or gardening that one would have to find in a specialty nursery, as my biggest customer did in southeast PA. It is a sensitive plant and can die out with some kind of stress. I watched it for about a decade uphill above the little pond at my biggest customer's yard, and then there was a very wet year in 2015 and it died. It is a handsome and unique little broadleaf evergreen that is worth trying out. I recommend botanical gardens and arboretums to keep a good collection of this native species to help out the species.

Your right about the difficulty in finding a supplier. I've been growing this very small leaved plant for 5 years now and it has slowly spread. It makes a great ground cover. I had no idea it was considered native to PA. Thanks for that info.
