This rare wildflower is a member of the mustard family and is found Only in Florida. Warea amplexifolia is listed as endangered by both the U.S. and Florida.
Clasping warea occurs in the sandhills of central Florida from Marion to Polk & Osceola Counties.
Also called wideleaf pinelandcress, the flowers form in crowded terminal clusters somewhat globular shaped that mature from the bottom up, with whitish corollas, turning rose-purple on long pedicels. The individual flowers are about a half inch across with four paddle-shaped petals and six long stamens. The fruit is a thin pod 7-8cm (~3 in.) long called a silique and the leaves are heart-shaped and clasp the stem.
The species was originally collected somewhere in east Florida by Nathaniel A. Ware, Thomas Nuttall at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia originally named this plant Stanleya amplexifolia in 1822. Later, in 1834 Nuttall reconsidered it as a separate genus which he named after the collector.
