Dade Native Plant Workshop

Enthusiastic folks who wish to learn how to identify South Florida's wild plants

I brought this to FTBG plant id workshop and all we could come up with was Triday procumbens 'coat button' - I actually found T. procumbens (hope I got that correct) tonight while walking the dog.IMG_0815.JPG

Thanks, I suspected it was an exotic -

Looks to me like Acmella pilosa, a non-native.  Like Tridax, it is a member of the very large sunflower family (Asteraceae).  It is uncommon in lawns around FTBG.  Flowers when eaten numb your mouth.  We have a native Acmella oppositifolia var. repens., found in moist pinelands and marsh edges which has similar properties.
