Lizard’s tail is a Florida native that gets its name from the flower spikes that curl and droop as they bloom and begin to produce dozens of nut-like seeds. The flower spikes are typically 6 to 8 inches long, but can reach a foot. It is a water-loving plant, found on the edges of marshes and swamps. We found this one along the Cypress Swamp boardwalk trail in Highlands Hammock State Park.
