Juba's bush

Iresine diffusa

Description:

Tiny, delicate white flowers growing on a panicle. The plant overall was fairly tall (2-3 feet). It was so plentiful I assumed it was invasive, but I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it is actually a native plant to Florida. However, many people would consider it a "weedy" native.

Habitat:

Shady forest alongside a trail leading to a mangrove-lined shoreline. Nearby was cabbage palm, Milkberry (Chiococca alba), and Rivina humilis
