The Endangered Plants of Florida

 

 

Scrub Morning Glory
Bonamia grandiflora

 

Florida, La Florida, as it was named by Spanish explorer

Ponce De Leon, in the early 1500's, means Land of the Flowers.

We certainly do attempt to live up to the name!


This Threatened plant was once seen throughout

the entire Lake Wales Ridge Ecosystem.

Now, it is mainly found in the Ocala National Forest.

If you look when driving in the area you will

see it winding along side the road, its beautiful

purple blue flowers turned up towards the light.
