Lolly come-see-me plant?

    I'm an amateur botanist, horticulturist and general plant geek and I saw reference to this plant towards the end of the book (about 100 pages to go...) I assumed its a real plant but google says otherwise, unless 'Salem's Lot is set in Australia! Any of you guys in America confirm this plant?

    ...nope, no help from this front.....I had completely forgotten about that, and now I'm wondering.....the only thing I can think of is a "lollipop plant" which is a real thing....

    We have loblolly pine trees but I have never heard of that plant. It must be a New England colloquialism.
