Plants of the Everglades

At the end of my Caribbean Vacation, I stopped at Everglades holiday Park in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for an airboat ride through the Everglades.  Sawgrass (Cladium jamaicense) and spatterdock (Nuphar lutea) are everywhere, interrupted only occasionally by pickerelweed (Pontederia cordata).
