Hammock Snakeroot

15 Nov

This plant was found today growing along the entrance road to a local park. These were in the shady disturbed ditch area outside the park – yet none were growing in the park! Pretty white flowers on 2-3′ stalks with somewhat large green leaves. The individual flowers were tiny – but the overall flower head was about 5″ across.

    What park? I live in Palm Beach Gardens and am trying to attract more butterflies to our backyard garden. On other local native pages I discovered that this plant attracts a whole bunch including the hard to find Malachite! I am trying to find out if any of these plants are found near me or if they would grow in our area. Thanks! By the way, your pages are wonderful and so are the photographs. Keep it up!

      Hi Gilda,
      This was found growing in lake county. If you want to see what grows in your area check out the Florida Plant Atlas website. You can look up the plant and see a map of where it grows.
      Good luck!
