- Created Date:
- Toothache grass. Atlantic Coastal Plain endemic. From Natural Gardens (page 94): "Of preeminent importance is the orange-grass (Campulosus aromaticus, fig. 134). It may be instantly recognized by its scythe-shaped compact head of spikelets. These latter, the little units of the inflorescence, are borne on one side of the connecting stem and each one bears a few delicate bristles. A final test is the odor. Shut the eyes and crush the fresh head and you will imagine yourself in the orange groves of Florida. Curiously enough, the rest of the plant does not produce the odor."; From Natural Gardens (page 341): "KEY TO SPECIES: Leaves lying on side, curving upward toward end. Pitcher-plant (8. purpurea)."
