Yellow Carolina Jessamine

I found this beautiful, flowering vine in the middle of O’Leno State Park in Florida. With a little bit of detective work, I discovered that this is a Yellow Carolina Jessamine, the state flower of South Carolina. Although this plant is toxic to people, it benefits bees by killing a parasite in their feces…bonus!
