WHAT FLORIDA NATIVE PLANT IS BLOOMING TODAY?: FOURLEAF VETCH (Vicia acutifolia)
Delicate vine that has a sticky feel to it and can be aggressive. Generally a spring bloomer (odd weather this year). It doesn’t stand up to heat so it disappears once summer rolls around. Good cool weather bloomer for pollinators.
