Positive MotherNature4 On Jun 25, 2005, MotherNature4 from Bartow, FL (Zone 9a) wrote:

Fairly common throughout Florida, the Silverling is very similar to related native species. The flowers are sessile (almost no stems) and usually in clusters of 3. The more common B. halimifolia has single & double flowers with peduncles (flower stems).

Male and female flowers appear on different plants. The small tan to yellowish male flowers are fragrant. The females bear billowing clusters of fluffy seeds that blow in the wind.
