Florida’s Native Plants |  Hunt for the Rare Bartram’s Ixia

Joined by native plant expert Adam Arendell with the Florida Native Plant Society Ixia Chapter as we hike Julington Durbin-Creek Preserve in our River’s Lower Basin to hunt for the rare Bartram’s Ixia. Only found in Northeast Florida in seven counties, this flower starts to bloom in the early morning in the early summer months. There’s always something in bloom at the beautiful 2,000+ acre Julington-Durbin Preserve for many kinds of native Florida flowers.
