Wetland Plant of the Week #3

Cephalanthus occidentalis

Wetland obligate species with ball like clusters of small white flowers.
This flower cluster photographed in the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve


  1. Hey, thanks much for the Cephalanthus picture. I've not been able to find them since moving to Alabama.

  2. A fellow photographer photographed a couple of these and was trying to find out what they where, You popped up in google images under white ball flower. Very helpful!!

  3. We found one of these in our backyard in Alabama. I had never seen one before, and my daughters and I were very interested in what htey were (They are so pretty!!) Your blog came up when we searched flower white ball.


  4. I, too, was looking for the name of this beauty and found your blog. Thanks!
