December 2, 2022

This is a plant known as Saltmarsh Morning-Glory
Ipomoea sagittata is my scientific name
Ipomoea means "resembling a woodworm"
Because of how I wind and spiral in a manner arcane
Sagittata comes from the Greek word for "arrow"
My arrow-shaped leaves is to what that pertains.

Location: Orlando Wetlands Park, Christmas, FL
