Known by many common names such as sea-oxeye daisy, sea marigold, beach carnation, seaside tansy, and silver sea-oxeye, bushy seaside oxeye (Borrichia frutescens) is common in Florida's coastal strands, mangroves, beach dunes, salt marshes and tidal flats. It blooms year-round, keeping our coastline in color and attracting butterflies and other pollinators. Its seeds provide food for birds and other small wildlife.
