Wild Poinsettia Superbloom
A wildflower superbloom is currently occuring along Central Florida beaches. The superbloom event is dominated by Florida Wild Poinsettia (Euphorbia heterophylla). The best place to enjoy these wildflowers is at the Canaveral National Seashore where there are 58,000 acres of beachfront wilderness preserved.
Native Floridians know Wild Poinsettia, a spurge, to be mildly poisonous and prevent their pets from foraging on the plant. Walking through a field of Wild Poinsettia in shorts could also lead the plant's milky sap to be deposited on one's legs causing irritation. It is best to enjoy this wildflower from some distance.
