Baccharis halimifolia

EASTERN BACCHARIS

GROUNDSEL TREE

SEA MYRTLE

Florida native

 

In fall the GROUNDSEL TREE goes to seed creating showy white-capped bushes along roadsides throughout much of Florida. Ironically, this Florida native is an invasive plant in Australia. Introduced to the island continent as an ornamental, it can displace the Melaleuca tree (Melaleuca quinquenervia - a problem invasive in Florida) in its native habitat.

 
Baccharis halimifolia is a member of the Asteraceae - Aster family.
