Attractive to fire flies -- how cool is that!I had one for a couple of years. It flowered and set pods readily, and I found some seedlings popping up in pots adjacent to where I was keeping it. At that point I got tired of it and gave it all to a friend. It also seemed to be very attractive to fire flies when in bloom??
False statement oke:It's interesting how some people seem determined to classify plants as invasive and make efforts to remove them when invading is how the "native" plants got there in the first place.
I was passing through slowly - my first (and last) year at university at the University of Miami. At that time this species was confined to a few hammock forests in and around Miami. I saw it at Matheson Hammock, a county park that contains the largest piece of what was once a large subtropical hammock forest extending to the north even beyond the Miami River (which is now a nasty, dredged canal). I would love to have seen that area a hundred years ago!WELCOME to the forum KyushuCalanthe! Do you live in Fla. or were you passing thru?
