Note the “scorpion tail” shape of the flowers. Its linear leaves are succulent. This pollinator-attracting plant is  quite sturdy and resilient, as you can see from this photograph below taken on a mosquito control dike at Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge.

  1. By the way, this was the last walk at TRWT for IRLT for the season. We still have several IRLT walks scheduled, one at Lagoon Greenway this coming Friday and one birding tour at Bee Gum this month. Maybe Ken can send you more info.
