  7. Nuttall's Rayless Goldenrod at Rock Hill Preserve

    These rocky outcrops, an unusual geologic feature in Florida, are an indicator of a unique habitat that hosts many rare and endangered plant species such as the Nuttall's Rayless Goldenrod (Bigelowia nuttallii) that is in the foreground.
    This property in Washington County is protected by The Nature Conservancy. Because of its fragility, the presrve is not open to the general public.

  8. Florida Royal Palm

    Roystonea regia
    Some consider the Florida Royal Palm to be a separate species from the Cuban Royal Palm, but most experts say there are not enough differences between the two groups to separate them. Ironically a majority of the Royal Palms planted in south Florida landscapes were imported from Cuba since it was easier to transport them by boat than overland from the Florida swamps.
