Carrotwood. Evergreen tree from Australia, sometimes multi-trunked, nice shade tree. Clusters of small, greenish-white flowers are borne on stalks that emerge from leaf axils. The showy, brightly colored fruit is a yellow, three-lobed capsule which, when ripe splits open to expose three shiny black seeds encased in red or orange fleshy tissue. Flesh is bright orange, recembling carrot juice, hence the name of the tree. Easy to grow.

Unfortunately for the bees the trees that they love best are considered noxious weeds. Destruction of their nectar and pollen sources is a direct detriment to increasing the bee population of Florida.

Carrotwood trees are a Category 1 invasive plant species and selling it is in violation of the Florida Statutes section 581.083 and Florida Administrative Rule 5B-57.004.

Besides it being against the law, it is extremely irresponsible to sell this noxious weed.

I will be reporting you to both the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services as well as the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
