Rose of Plymouth is a delicate native Florida wildflower found throughout the state. It grows in moist areas such as brackish coastal marshes as well as wet inland habitats. The solitary flowers each have five oval pink petals positioned around a star-shaped yellow eye that is bordered in red. Each bloom is borne on a long, slender flower stalk. In Florida, Sabatia stellaris can be abundant in some areas, showing a lovely landscape heavily dotted with these dainty pink flowers.
