A frequent shrub or small tree of wet hammocks, mesic woodlands and floodplains throughout the panhandle and the north and central peninsula of Florida. The range of Asimina parviflora extends through the southeastern coastal states from Virginia to Texas, plus Arkansas.
The inconspicuous maroon flowers with a fetid aroma are less than 2 cm (about 3/4 in) wide on peduncles less than 1cm long. Smallflower pawpaw blooms from February through April. The leaves are alternate, simple and entire from 6-15(20) cm (about 2-1/3 to 6 inches) long. New leaves on flowering branches are often held erect and distinctly different in appearance from mature leaves. The fruit is a fleshy, greenish-yellow berry 3-7 cm long.
