    Well, we’re at 21 now. I’ll add in Scorpion Tail (Heliotropium angiospermum):

    And one of my favorite Florida wildflowers, known as (I’m not making this up)
    “Turkey Tangle Frogfruit” (Phyla nodiflora):

    And that’s 23. Anyone else? I know there are more!

    Have a great week, everyone!
