Florida Native Plants

Florida is a long state with several temperature zones and many types of ecosystems, including swamps, hardwood hammocks, and scrubs. Additionally, it has a wide range of weather patterns from wet hot summers, to dry cool late winters and springs.  Native plants in Florida have evolved to withstand these conditions and thrive.  

Once established native plants will need little water and fertilizer. These traits will help conserve dwindling resources and help preserve Florida's fragile ecosystem.
