At the top of hedge parsley are teeny-tiny white flowers. (May 11, 2016)
[Two images spliced together. On the left is an image of the entire plant which has several long thin stems with blooms at the top. The base of the plant is spiky greenery. On the right is a close-up of the very tiny five-petaled white flowers. There are probably at least 15 flowers in each clump and the top of the plant has about 10 clumps.]

Florida pusley is another plant with teeny-tiny white flowers. (May 22, 2016)
The thin green strands in this image are blades of grass.
[A clump of white flowers which each have six petals and each petal comes to a point. In the center of each flower are multiple long white stamen which have a bulb at the end. There are three clumps of flowers but only one has more than one bloom.]

Fogfruit - A tiny wildflower that the small butterflies like (July 31, 2015)
[This flower is cluster of white flowers around a purple mound center and is no bigger in diameter than a dime.]

A close view of a white clover bloom (March 8, 2017)
[The three leaves of the clover plant are seen below the pinkish-white bloom. The bloom has many petals emanating from the stem in a spherical shape. Some of the oblong petals are folded in half lengthwise.]

Possibly Robin's plantain wildflowers (March 19, 2015)
[A grouping of white flowers with yellow centers. The white part of the flower appears to be many (50-60?) thin petals.]

White-top sedge (left photo - July 15, 2017)-(right photo - September 13, 2015)
[Two photos spliced together. The image on the left is a close-up of a side view of one flower. The flower has petals that look like pieces of grass except the part closest to the center are white (while the rest is green). The center of the flower is a multitude of greyish-white stamen with prongs at the end of the tips. The image on the right is a top down view of two blooms.]

The spider lily bud (October 20, 2017) holds many blooms (November 3, 2017).
[Two images are spliced together. On the left is green pod atop a stem and a small section is open showing all the blooms-to-be bunched together. The image on the right is the blooms separated, but the petals are still fully closed such that they appear to be white stalks coming from the green stems.]

Spider lilies in full bloom. (November 13, 2014)
[Blooms with very long, skinny white petals. They almost appear to be white ribbons.]

Ladies tresses, presumably because they look like hair curls (May 6, 2016)
[Two images spliced together. On the left is an image of the entire plant which is a single green stem around which small white flowers are attached in one long upward spiral. The image on the right is a closeup of the flowers which are side-by-side in the spiral. The flower petals begin separating from each other about a third of the way from the base so this is more of a cup-like flower rather than a petalled flower.]

Dotted smartweed (September 3, 2017)
[Several thin branches of this plant extend from lower left to upper right. There are no leaves on the stems, but each stem has at least a dozen tiny white flowers.]

Spanish needle wildflowers (July 31, 2015)
[A group of flowers with six white petals that are rectangular in shape and puffy yellow centers.]

Elderberry flowers (April 22, 2017)
[A large group of many tiny white five-petaled booms. Although leaves can be seen in the background, there are so many blooms that leaves can only be seen on the outer edges of the white bunch.]

Southern dewberry wildflowers (March 19, 2015) progress to produce dewberries (May 2, 2016).
[Two photos spliced together. Photo on left displays tWo white flowers. Each has five petals which are completely separate from each other. The middle of the flower is bunch of thin, long filaments topped with a dark color. Photo on right has three segmented berries. Each berry is at the top of a single stem which is about four inches tall. The largest berry on the left is shades of green and pink. The slightly smaller one beside it is a brighter shade of red. The small berry on the right is still all green. ]

Black nightshade flowers (March 24, 2017) eventually produce berries (April 4, 2017).
[Two photos spliced together. Photo on left displays a branch of a plant with two offshoots visible. The top one has several leaves. The bottom one has a sub-branching of six stems leading to white-petaled flowers with yellow stubs emanating from the center of flower. The bottom flowers have their petals folded back towards the stem while the top flowers have their closed petals completely hiding the yellow centers. Photo on right has masses of smooth black berries at the ends of stems attached to the main vertical branches amid the many leaves. There is also one grouping of green berries. ]

White African Iris blooming near the hotel (April 4, 2016) will curl up during parts of the day (April 15, 2017).
This flower is considered to have two sets of petals, an inner set and an outer set.
[Two photos spliced together. Photo on left has one bloom with six white petals. Every other petal has a mustard yellow coloration in the center. There is an  inner set of petals consisting of three whitish-clear ones with purple coloring in the middle of each. The photo on the right are two blooms with the outer parts of all petals tightly curled into the center of the flower. The visible underside of the petals are white with streaks of yellow.]

This flower is in the same family as the prior one and is known as yellow wild iris or peacock flower (May 5, 2016)
It also has two sets of petals, an inner set and an outer set.
[This flower has four cream-colored petals on the outer ring and about a half dozen on the inner ring. It may be that some which appear in the photo to be on the inner ring are outer ring ones. Three of the outer ring petals have a burnt-color brown spot on them on the inner part of the petal.]

Duck potato arrowhead (April 22, 2017) The base of this plant has an edible root shaped similar to the outline of a sitting duck. It grows at the edges of swamps.
[From a main branch at approximately three inch intervals, three stems protrude around the branch. At the end of each stem is a round greenish ball except for two stems which have bloomed. The flower has three large petals which hang downward. A center comprised of short yellow stamen stick upward.]

Small white flower (September 3, 2017)
[One five-petaled white flower with long thin stamen with green top sticks out from numerous oval-shaped stiff leaves.]

This plant had white flowers coming from green bulbs at the tops of the stem and had huge leaves (seen behind the bulb in this image). I'm guessing it is some type of swamp flower. (June 2, 2016)
[Three green bulbs emerge from one green stem. At the tops of the bulbs are long thin mouth-like openings from which the long-stalked cream-white flower emerges (as if the plant is spitting up the flowers). Three bulbs are visible in the image, but only two of them have flowers coming from them. One large leaf from the plant is visible behind the bulbs.]

Honeysuckle (April 22, 2017)
[There are both all yellow and all white flowers springing forth from dark green leaves. Each flower has long stamen visible.]

Bottlebrush peppergrass (March 13, 2016)
[Two photos spliced together. The left photo is the entire upper portion of several plants. The branches coming from the main stalk are long and have a cylindrical shape like brushes used for cleaning bottles. The leaves are tiny flat ovals. Many small white flowers sit at the top of the branches. The image on the right is a close view of the top of one branch. There is one paddle-shaped leaf at the end of each stem coming from the branch. There are are upwards of a dozen white flowers at the top of the branch.]

Narrowleaf plantain is one of the many common names for this plant. (April 22, 2017)
[Two photos spliced together. The left photo shows nine stems of the plant. At the top of each stem is a brown section topped by a green cone. At the junction of the brown and green are short white-tipped stalks which radiate in a circle around the cone.The image on the right is a close view of one bloom.  The center of the bloom is a green cone from which spines tipped with small white blooms emanate in a circle around the base of the cone. Below the green cone is a brown section which sits atop the stem.]

Foxtail. (June 26, 2017)
[On a single stem protruding from the left is a long cylindrical seed head. The seeds at the center are small and green and surrounded by long thin spikes which protrude from the stem giving the impression of a cylindrical brush.]

Interesting plant for which I someday hope to find the name. (September 26, 2017)
[On a single stem protruding from the left is a five-stemmed top resembling a star or pinwheel. Each stem is similar to the foxtail in the prior image in that there are seeds and spikes on them although these spikes are much shorter and the seeds thicker.]

Nutsedge. (June 4, 2017)
[This is an all-green plant with a single stem which branches into many stems at the top. At the top of each of the short stems are star-shaped globules of short spikes.]
