Favorite flower?

What’s my favorite Florida flower?

As nice as Bartram’s Rose Gentian, it can’t quite compete with the aroma of the orange blossom. Naples in springtime is a shadow of its former self because all the groves are gone. (Town founders, if they were still around to see it, or rather I mean smell, would not be happy at this modern-day development, and quite literally so, because “developments” were the very thing that took them away!) Come springtime you can still drive inland towards Immakolee where groves abound to get the scent.

Or you can drive into the swamp to see Bartram’s Rose Gentian.

By sight alone it’s my favorite.
