Wild Poinsettia

24 Dec

The wild poinsettia – or “Painted-Leaf ” grows throughout the state in old fields, hammocks and disturbed sites. This one was found on a trail along the Apopka Beauclaire Canal in Central Florida. However this variety pictured has pink bracts and slender straight leaves – so it may be a relative of Poinsettia cyathophora or Poinsettia pinetorum?
