Tarflower is a beautiful flowering shrub in the rhododendron family that is native to the southeastern United States. It grows in sunny, sandy woodlands and shrubby areas in sandy soil. Like many other plants in the rhododendron family, its fruits are small, woody capsules that have very tiny seeds. The seeds are light brown. This is an unusual native plant that is common in the wild but is very rarely grown in gardens.

Bejaria racemosa, commonly known as tarflower, is a flowering shrub native to the southeastern United States, particularly found in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. Here are some key characteristics and information about Bejaria racemosa:

Description: It is an evergreen shrub that can reach heights of 3 to 8 feet. The leaves are small, narrow, and arranged alternately along the stems.
