Feb 7 Mangrove

Mangrove is an important plant in the Florida eco-system.
There are three main mangrove plants here, the white, red and black mangrove.
Each one is different. Red mangrove grows closest to the water.

This looks like a different mangrove tree.
They can live in salt or brackish waters.
Mangrove provide an environment for many fish.
These are called prop roots and it helps stabilize the area.
This is a tropical plant but it can survive in Florida's
northern sub tropical climate.

Have a nice day
