Narrowleaf Silkgrass

Pityopsis graminifolia

Description:

Very plentiful plant with yellow flowers; fluffy seeds; and flat, grass-like leaves.

Habitat:

In an area surrounded by pines in the Withlacoochee State Forest Citrus Tract

Notes:

According to the reference link, "this complex was recently revised to recognize five species occurring in Florida: P. aequilifolia (endemic), P. latifolia (endemic), P. graminifolia s.str., P. microcephala, and P. tracyi (endemic) (Weakley et al. 2018)." I'm not sure which it is, so I am leaving it at this species for now.
