Melaleuca quinquenervia

This bio-photo of Melaleuca quinquenervia in bloom is by ace bio-photographer Kerry Dressler, reproduced from stock photgraphy images available on her CD Southern Aquatic Plants.

Also commonly named Punk Tree, Melaleuca is a member of the Myrtle family as well as a Category 1 Exotic Pest Plant in Florida (by chris). It was reputedly sown throughout Florida wetlands by railroad men as part of a plan to soak up the water of the everglades ecosystem for further development.

 

"Ecosystems of Florida has a proud heritage. Its authors have the same skill and enthusiasm that characterized the early Florida ecologists. The descriptions will encourage and delight a multitude of men and women who are enamored of Florida’s landscapes. The salvation of the Florida scene will come about only if the public savors its beauty, understands its limitations, and speaks up for its preservation. This book has come just in time to save the landscapes of Florida."—Marjorie Harris Carr, from the foreword
