|Natural range of Dalea albida from USDA NRCS Plants Database.|
Dalea albida is a dioecious perennial that grows as a forb/herb or a subshrub.
This species occurs from eastern Georgia, westward to southeast Alabama, and southward to northern peninsular Florida.
D. albida is found in pinelands. It also occurs in central Florida glades where it has a 5% frequency. It was found to be among the most cold-hardy legumes found in southern Georgia, where it persists through repeated frosts and was present in January and February field surveys.
In the southeastern and mid-Atlantic United States, flowering occurs from July through November.
