Naturalized common shrub of semi-open moist spots.
This taxon is weedy and sometimes cultivated as a low hedge. It is possibly a form of S. jamaicensis but could also be the hybrid Stachytarpheta x intercedens Danser.  (If its a hybrid it is a fertile hybrid).

A white-flowered form is cultivated as a herbal medicine. This white form also occurs in the wild.

In FLA, this taxon is given the name Stachytarpheta urticifolia Sims .
However that name is now considered a synonym of S. cayennensis
