S. campanulata is a perennial forb/herb of the Gentianaceae family native to North America.
S. campanulata is found along the southeastern coast of the United States from Texas to Massachusetts.
S. campanulata proliferates in pine savannas, bogs, seeps, and fens. Specimens have been collected from borders of brackish marshes, moist loam of longleaf pine woodland, mesic pine-oak woods, and cypress pond.
Populations of Sabatia campanulata have been known to persist through repeated annual burning.
