Wetland Plant of the Week #19

Borrichia frutescens


Sea Oxeye is an Obligate member of the Asteraceae family and is native to salt water wetlands in Florida, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean. Often found in and around Mangroves, its fleshy gray-green leaves and large yellow composite flowers make it easy to identify.

I photographed this one yesterday near the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge.
