Artist's Description

This photo was taken at Lovers Key In Estero Florida
This was one of the first photo’s I took with the morning light shinning .
I used a canon rebel xt 1/2000s with f5.6 and 400 ISO for there was not enough light.

Sea-Grape (or Seagrape) is a Florida native and also of the Tropical Americas. Rated at about 25 feet, this tree is related to the coral vine and pigeon-plum, Coccoloba diversifolia. It can be a large shrub or a small tree, depending on nature or your training

Sea Grape has large, thick, round evergreen leaves. Young leaves are red and then turn to a nice shiny green. The Seagrape’s wood is interesting and very nicely colored, varying with the amount of sun and salt exposure

The ‘grapes’ are the seeds and grow in nice clusters, especially where exposed to the sun. Birds love to eat the grapes and a fine jelly can be made when ripe in early summer

Don’t confuse Seagrape with Sea Hibiscus which also has very large leaves and flowers that change color as they mature

Seagrape is salt tolerant and can be happy very close to the ocean if not overly exposed to strong winds. It wants full sun and its favorite soil is plain beach sand. Better soil, however, is appreciated as long as it is well drained
