This Common Area has a historic perspective. In the early 1990's while developing this area, Sunnier Palms assisted in the preservation of the endangered pitcher plants. Sunnier provided a habitat for the care of a dozen of the rare species of the Lutea, while they were being transplanted to a new site by the St. Lucie County and the State Division of Forestry. As a result several plants established a permanent home in the wetlands of Sunnier Palms. Another preservation project involved the care of the Atala butterfly, which eats the Croontis, a species of Cycad. Hundreds of larvae, catapillars, and chrysalids were harvested at a near by site being developed and the home bird population of Sunnier assisted in the development of this endangered beautiful butterfly. Over the years since these events the constant dedication of Sunnier volunteers have transformed this area into one of the most respected wildlife areas in Southern Florida.
If you visit this area you may see sun beams dance over the strings of the spider's web, where you can stroll in solitude and fully experience natures true gifts---naturally! Sunnier offers to all the opportunity to take a deep breath of life and view the respect appreciated for the total freedom of nudity.

A Featured Species--
A Fresh Sprig !
The above picture is Similax ssp (Cathier)/Sunnier common name " Wild Asparagus". Biologist David Southall taught many of us at Sunnier to idenity the tender new shoots and then enjoy raw or even better satuteed in butter. The root of this vine is difficult to dig-up, which makes maintaining it difficult, however the reward of digging up an intact root, about the size of a fist, is great carving material. For a short time just after it's harvested the root consistency is that of soap and easily carved. By the next day, carved or not, the root is hard as a rock. bon appetit. TA
