Stems simple or branched, 20–40 (–50) cm; branches ascending, quadrangular-ridged, scabridulous on faces and angles. Leaves spreading-ascending; blade linear, widened distally, 10–15 (–20) x 0.4–1.5 mm, not fleshy, margins entire, midvein sometimes abaxially scabrous, adaxial surface scabrous; axillary fascicles shorter than or equal to subtending leaves. Inflorescences racemes, elongate, flowers 1 or 2 per node; bracts longer than pedicels. Pedicels ascending, 0.5–3.4 mm, glabrous. Flowers: calyx hemispheric, tube 2.5–3 mm, sometimes scabrous proximally, lobes triangular, 1–1.4 mm; corolla pale-pink, without 2 yellow lines and red spots, 12–14 mm, throat pilose externally and villous within across bases and sinus of adaxial lobes, lobes: abaxial spreading, adaxial reflexed-spreading, 3–5 mm, abaxial pilose externally, adaxial glabrous externally; proximal anthers parallel to filaments, distal perpendicular to filaments, pollen-sacs 1.2–1.7 mm; style included or slightly exserted, 4–7.7 mm. Capsules globular, 3.5–5 mm. Seeds dark-brown, 0.4–0.6 mm.


Phenology: Flowering late Aug–late Sep(–Oct).
Habitat: Dry or moist longleaf pine savannas, oak openings, wiregrass-dominated seepage slopes, margins of bogs.
Elevation: 0–80 m.

Discussion

Although Agalinis georgiana is listed as a synonym of A. fasciculata in some databases and floras, differences in anatomy and characters used in the key suggest that A. georgiana is distinct.

Agalinis georgiana is rare and known from southeastern Alabama, the northwestern panhandle of Florida, and south-central Georgia.
