Florida Rosemary

Florida Rosemary (Ceratiola ericoides) – This smaller ornamental shrub is not related to the edible herb rosemary, although they are similar in appearance. It grows only in a scrub environment along with sand pines and scrub oaks (dry, sandy soil) and is hard to transplant. Tiny yellow berries are not edible to humans, but are a favorite food of ants. The rosemary releases an herbicide that only dissipates when exposed to fire, which allows just one seedling to sprout and take root in place of the parent plant.
