Yucatan Flymallow (Cienfuegosia yucatanensis) is a small to medium shrub, subshrub or flowering plant native to the sandy habitats of the Florida Keys and far southern Miami-Dade County in far southern Florida (zones 10b through 11). It is also found in the Caribbean.

The leaves are usually small, thin, and pointed.

The small to medium flowers are bright yellow to yellow-orange.

Due to habitat destruction, this plant is sadly listed as endangered by the state of Florida.

The flowers may attract some pollinating insects.

It is also known as Yellow-Hibiscus.
