Alfred Maclay's Coonties

Alfred Maclay Gardens State Park also featured the Coontie, a shrub that made me think of raccoon claws. Was it, I wonder, the state flower of Chiles' Florida? The garden walkways meandered in and out of a thick canopied palm forest, with clearings here and there in the Spanish moss spider webs so you could look out on Lake Hall.
