WHAT FLORIDA NATIVE PLANT IS BLOOMING TODAY?: MANYFLOWER MARSHPENNYWORT (Hydrocotyle umbellata)
Florida Native ground cover for wet locations. Said to be edible.
Since Pennywort is a natural filter that absorbs chemicals, including pesticides and fertilizers from runoff, care should be taken that the population of plants is in a non-targeted area before ingesting.
Can also be referred to as “Dollar Weed”, on the hit list of most chemical weed killer producers for reasons I don’t understand 😮
