Wetland Plant of the Week #10

Lyonia lucida


Member of the Ericacea. Facultative wet, evergreen shrub with reddish to deep pink flowers. Leaves have a distinctive vein that parrallels leaf margins.

Here's another snapshot of the same plant with a jumping spider on guard (Phidippus spp.?).

Both photographed yesterday in Levy County, Florida.
