WHAT FLORIDA NATIVE PLANT IS BLOOMING TODAY?: WILD COFFEE (Psychotria nervosa)
Beautiful shrub which attracts pollinators and birds with the resulting red fruits. Said to be a Larval host for the Coffee-loving Pyrausta Moth (Pyrausta tyralis) but I have yet to find any caterpillars although I have scads of adults flying around.
Where does it grow in Florida? http://www.florida.plantatlas.usf.edu/Plant.aspx?id=2811
