Florida Native Plants have evolved over time in reliance on the soil, rainfall, and climate specific to our area. They naturally provide habitat and food for native birds, animals, and insects. Because Native Plants are accustomed to our local weather conditions, they thrive with the least amount of care, and help us use less resources to keep them growing. How Earth-Friendly is that?
When landscaping with Natives, you may consider selecting a variety of sizes, shapes, and types of plants (ground covers, shrubs, trees). This will not only create visual interest, but will also provide habitat for various wildlife.
Adding Florida Natives to your landscape is a great Earth-mindful way to protect our local environment. Learn more about Florida Friendly Landscaping, here!
