BEHOLD BACCHARIS

Groundsel Tree (Baccharis halimifolia) is an important salt marsh species that helps to reinforce and stabilize vulnerable shorelines and provide cover for wildlife. One of the few indigenous shrubs to flower in fall, its nectar provides food for many insects, including Beetles, Bees, Flies, Wasps, and Butterflies. Your observations can help document the versatility and beauty of this often overlooked native plant.
