Plants of Agalinis aphylla grow in more mesic portions of wetlands and rarely grow in the deep, saturated, mucky soil where A. harperi and A. linifolia are found. The ecotone between these communities is marked by the distribution of A. aphylla, which often forms a distinctive border between inundated and saturated to mesic soil. The pedicels, buds, and capsules of A. aphylla dry reddish brown to black and contrast markedly with the much paler greenish tan stems and branches. Corollas dry brownish pink, and styles are often pilose.
