Loblolly Bay

12 Jun

These native trees have beautiful white flowers during the summer months. Look for them on the edges of wetlands and marshy areas as they prefer wetter areas. I planted this one in my yard about 15 years ago and it is doing well. It helps that I’m located next to a wetland!

    I used to go to a restaurant in Pine Island called Loblolly. Your picture makes me wonder if they named it after bay instead of pine, which I previously thought. The loblolly trees remain, but the restaurant found a fire it didn’t like.

      ah, too bad about the fire. Was the restaurant surrounded by the pines or the bays?

        Pines. But there was the ubiquitous, non-native, and beautiful Australian pine, too.
