Hurricanes relocating vegetation

Since about 2019 scientists have turned their attention to the effect of hurricanes, like Irma in 2017, on movingmoving vegetation around.

The study I found is looking at the Santa Fe swamp area in North Florida, which is of particular interest because that is land we prevented being mined for peat. LOL What prompted my interest was the fact thatWhile Irma allowed our goldfish to swim away and flooded the AC installation under the house, it also left us a crop of yellow waterlilies and, I suspect, those Mexican coral beans growing on the berm in my marsh.

I now have three plants from beans I planted in pots and stashed under a bush to thrive or not. While these plants are supposedly deciduous, under the lantana they retained their leaves. Now I have to find some place to plant them permanently.
