    Physalaemus-thanks for the correction!

    Thanks all for the compliments!

    JB-believe me-most of us have that same reaction when we see these things in the wild-once you come to your senses, it's a very peaceful and aesthetically beautiful place...essentially, a plant-geeks version of heaven!

    Wow amazing!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Incredible plants! I need to get down to these sites soon. Hopefully the roadside populations don't follow the paths of other roadside seeps.

    Oh, and those nasty vines are called Smilax laurifolia. I know just how much they hurt. I was very good at finding it with my face, hands, and torso over the summer.

    meizwang,

    amazing pictures! My hometown is Bainbridge, Ga southwest corner. Decatur county. My house is a short hour and 45 minute drive to Panama City Beach, Fl. We take hwy 231 and just outside of Youngstown, Fl there is a beautiful patch of S. Leucos and the scarce random S. Flava along that hwy. Check it out if you are ever that way. This is the sad part though. The plants grow in the ditches that are mowed with bush hogs every year by the highway maint. crew. When I was younger the road was lined with Sarrs. but now there is an area only about a mile long that the odd patch will pop up on.
