    According to the Florida Atlas of Vascular Plants, they are documented as far south as Palm Beach and Collier Counties. They can be pretty hard to spot, unless you see a huge stand of them. They appear anywhere from August through October, some lasting just a week. This year seems to be a “bad” year. I hardly saw any in my neighborhood which is usually teaming with them (I live in a pine flatwoods ecosystem). This week there are a few more showing their heads tho so you might have better luck if you get out there this week 🙂 Good luck….they are absolutely breathtaking

  2. Am I too far south (vero beach) to find these in the woods? Whenever I’m out walking nature trails I keep a sharp eye, but in 3.5 yrs I’ve never seen any.
