October 23, 2018

Location: Malabar, Malabar Scrub

This is Yellow Milkwort.
Florida's the only place that it grows.
Its seeds are spread by ants who eat the "food body",
And then the seeds, in a heap, are disposed.

Sources: Wild South Florida - Yellow Milkwort  (This is a very interesting article, read to find out what a food body is!)
