6 Plants and Flowers Native to Florida That You May Not Know About - Florida Insider
The Porter weeds Stachytarpheta spp.) come in many wide varieties of flowers, and they can be found not just in Florida but in countries such as Jamaica, Bahamas and other areas all over the Caribbean and Asia. The Porter Weed gets its name from medicinal properties bestowed upon them in the Caribbean and in Florida.
Some of South Florida’s native plants may not be as striking as some of their more exotic counterparts. However, some do possess attractive foliage, colorful fruits, or add a pleasing form or texture to the landscape. South Florida has a wide variety of native plants that are both attractive and useful as landscape plants.

The Marlberry (ardisia escallonioides) is actually a fast-growing, evergreen small tree or shrub with dark green foliage. Clusters of small cream-colored flowers make this plant an attractive sight to behold. The plant also provides fruits for birds. It grows about 10-15 ft. tall, although it can get as tall as 20 ft. They can be planted with other flowers and plants in the same space, creating a beautiful, scenic view of a garden or front yard. Their multiple trunks can stand out when trained well into a small tree and can be lighted at night, creating a magnificent display.
5. Jamaican caper
Another interesting flower native to our sunny Florida (Miami) is the Jamaican caper (capparis cynophallophora). Jamaica caper flowers are quite showy, with two-inch-long purple stamens and white anthers and white petals. The evergreen, glossy leaves of this small shrub are folded together when they first open up to give the plant a bonze appearance. They can be trained into small plants as well, working well in soils with good drainage.

The bougainvillea (Nyctaginaceae) is a popular, pretty-flowered plant here in warm Miami, Florida. Indeed, it is a popular ornamental plant that can be seen hung as a decoration in many south Floridian homes and gardens. Although native to South America (“buganvilea” in Portuguese and “buganvilla” in Spanish is representative of the languages spoken in this continent’s countries), bougainvillea is very populous here in Miami. Almost any and every house along the streets of Miami can have a garden full of bougainvillea and are probably the pride and joy of every abuelita. The fact that it’s a drought-tolerant plant helps it survive the harsh Miami summer mont... Jan 4, 2020

Obituary: Peter Bartlett - Press Herald
Pete met the love of his life, Shelly Elliott, on a blind date, and they eloped in Jamaica on Jan. 5, 1993. Together, they created a life in Yarmouth, with their son, Jackson, and daughter, Lauren. Pete’s children were his pride and joy. He was an active parent and helped coach his children’s many teams, including baseball, soccer, basketball, and football. He loved being a parent in the stands, with his many friends in the community.
Pete enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and was well known for his infectious laugh. He was a very humble man who had a positive outlook on life with a straightforward philosophy – work hard, be true to your friends, take care of your family, and do the right thing. So many people have their own stories of how Pete did the right thing by them.
Pete is survived by his loving wife, Shelly, and children, Jackson and Lauren, all of Yarmouth. He is also survived by his parents, Jim and Phyllis of Hampden and Melbourne, Fla.; brother, Scott (Jackie) of Melbourne, Fla.; mother-in-law, Martha Elliott of Rumford; sister-in-law, Brenda (Walter) McCallister, of Standish; aunt Carol LaGrange and aunt Elaine (Ken) Buckley, all of Bangor; uncle Thomas (Linda) Carmichael of Lynnfield, Mass.; aunt Judy Craig of Snellville, Ga.; uncle, Frank Hollis of Rockport; nieces, Jessica and Jena Bartlett; nephews, Ben and Kyle McCallister; as well as many cousins.

Ruby red, tart and floral, dried hibiscus puts a tropical twist on drinks, desserts and more - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Let steep 5 to 10 minutes and then enjoy hot or iced.
A traditional Mexican drink, agua de Jamaica or hibiscus water, uses sugar to balance the tea’s natural tartness; the refreshing tea is served over ice with the midday meal.
Hibiscus is a natural fit for sultry summer cocktails. Vodka, gin, rum and tequila all play well with hibiscus, along with ingredients like pineapple, lemon, lime, ginger and mint. An easy way to add a tropical touch to an everyday drink is to have hibiscus simple syrup at the ready. Using equal parts sugar and water, along with dried hibiscus in the ratio mentioned above, bring everything to a boil until the sugar is dissolved, then strain out the flowers and keep it in the fridge for whenever the mood strikes.
The syrup is also great for splashing into sparkling water or freshly squeezed lemonade. Desserts are another place where hibiscus shines. The flower’s flavor is mild enough that it won’t dominate a recipe, but its magenta hue will turn heads, bringing a festive, feminine touch to the end of any meal.
I’ve been dreaming up a homemade ice cream flavored with hibiscus and raspberries. The flowers also can be used to color and flavor cake and frosting; in baked goods, hibiscus would pair well with vanilla bean, buttermilk or blueberries. Any dessert involving coconut could be made better by first steeping hibiscus into coconut milk. (Think panna cotta, flan, pudding or mousse.)
Savory preparations for hibiscus are harder to come by, but I could see using it in a meat glaze along with cranberries or cherries or using its brilliant color to enhance a vinaigrette dressing. There’s also a recipe for enchiladas with hibiscus flower that’s popping up on vegan menus.
To purchase dried hibiscus flowers for culinary use, look in the bulk spice section at natural food stores like Outpost, Mexican grocers (labeled as “flor de Jamaica”) or online. You can store the dried flowers in an airtight container for several months.
