Description

These individuals (here and elsewhere) have been very difficult for me to assign to species. They have characteristics suggestive of Morella pumila, but the odor of the crushed leaves is very similar to leaves of Morella caroliniensis. Leaf size is larger than that of Morella pumila and can rival that of Morella caroliniensis on occasion. Fruit size is more similar to that of Morella caroliniensis. Often co-occurs with Morella pumila, and, in fact, true Morella pumila can be seen in the bottom left corner of the third photo. Differs from Morella caroliniensis in smaller leaves with greenish (rather than whitish) abaxial surfaces, dwarf stature, and habitat. Tends to prefer wet to mesic pine woodlands, savannas, and bogs, and appears to be somewhat fire-dependent.

Swamp bay trees on the Econfina River State Park. Many of the young trees were resprouting from the base of trees that were killed by laurel wilt disease (which I will document in a separate observation).

Magnified pictures added, to show the shaggy pubescence on the twigs, buds, petioles, and undersides of the leaves that distinguishes this species from redbay (Persea borbonia). The tongue is sensitive enough to detect this; if you lick the underside of a leaf (trust me), on swamp bay it will feel velvety-fuzzy. The undersides of redbay leaves will feel smooth against the tongue.

Magnified pictures added, showing the fine, golden pubescence on the twigs, buds, and undersides of the leaves. The hairs on redbay are not really visible by eye; the leaf undersides feel smooth. Swamp bay (P. palustris) leaves have more long and shaggy pubescence. The tongue is sensitive enough to detect this; if you lick the underside of a leaf (trust me), on swamp bay it will feel velvety-fuzzy. The undersides of redbay leaves will feel smooth against the tongue. Compare to swamp bay, here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/15019191
