Saltmarsh Morning Glories
Photograph - Photograph
Saltmarsh morning glory flowers facing upward towards the sky. Photographed in Florida's Tomoka State Park.
Ipomoea sagittata gets its species name from the arrow-shaped leaves that distinguish this from the other morning-glories in Florida. They are found on coastal strands, in freshwater and brackish marshes, flatwoods and wet disturbed sites throughout much of Florida. The range of glades or saltmarsh morning glory includes the southeastern United States from Texas to North Carolina, Mexico, Guatemala, the Bahamas, Cuba and Jamaica.
