Now Blooming Tarflowers
Photograph - Photography
One of the highlights today as we drove across the Osceola National Forest in Columbia County, Florida, was to see the first of the Tarflowers, Bejaria racemosa, that were now blooming. They are called tar flowers because they are sticky. As a kid we used a whole wand of these as a sort of fly swatter for gnats. Butterflies and Bumblebees still manage to not get stuck as they are nectaring on these blooms.
