ROADSIDE PLANTS
WITH NATURAL MANGROVE IN THE BACKGROUND, THERE'S REDDISH SEA PURSLANE UP FRONT
GIVING WAY TO YELLOW-FLOWERED NARROWLEAF YELLOWTOP

NOTE: Sometimes natural vegetation grows right up to the pavement, so "roadside vegetation" is what's typical of the surrounding wild landscape. For example, sometimes mangroves grow along the road, with plants described in our mangrove section. Plants listed on this page are "weedy" -- species typical of places where natural vegeation has been removed, the soil disturbed, and there's plenty of sunlight and wind.
