SPECIES: Gaylussacia frondosa | Dangleberry
GENERAL DISTRIBUTION : Dangleberry occurs in the eastern United States. The range of the typical variety extends from New York, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire south along the Atlantic Coastal Plain to South Carolina [15]. Although dangleberry occurs primarily east of the Appalachian Mountains, it has been reported in Ohio, Tennessee, and West Virginia [3,13]. Gaylussacia frondosa var. tomentosa occurs from South Carolina to central Florida and west to Alabama [14,26]. The range of G. f. var. nana extends from southern Georgia south to central Florida, and west to Mississippi and possibly Louisiana [15].

It occurs in dry and moist woods, particularly in pine (Pinus spp.) flatwoods [7]. Dangleberry frequently occurs with other ericaceous shrubs including highbush cranberry (Vaccinium corymbosum), hillside blueberry (V. pallidum), Lyonia spp., sheep-laurel (Kalmia angustifolia), wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens), dwarf huckleberry (Gaylussacia dumosa), and black huckleberry (G. baccata) [9,17,28,31]. At swamp and drainage margins, dangleberry is associated with red maple (Acer rubrum), southern bayberry (Myrica cerifera), sweetbay (Magnolia virginiana), sweet pepperbush (Clethra alnifolia), redbay (Persea borbonia), loblolly bay (Gordonia lasianthus), fetterbush (Leucothoe racemosa), and Sphagnum spp. [8,9,18,34]. In longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) and slash pine (P. elliottii) communities, dangleberry occurs with bitter gallberry (Ilex glabra), wiregrass (Aristida stricta), and saw-palmetto (Serenoa repens) [18,28,31]. Dangleberry is listed as a dominant species in the following publications: 1. The phytosociology of the Green Swamp, North Carolina [18] 2. The ecology of southeastern shrub bogs (pocosins) and Carolina bays: a community profile [28]
