The use of only native plants in your florida landscaping helps limit the chances that potentially invasive, exotic plant species will be introduced into the native Florida environment around your home. Many of the invasive, exotic plant species present in Florida’s natural areas today were introduced as landscaping plants many decades ago. Continued introduction of new exotic plants into suburban landscapes will result in many new invasive plants in the future.
Many florida native plants produce showy flowers, abundant fruits and seeds, and brilliant fall foliage. By planting native plants, you will have a beautiful yard that is friendly to wildlife.
Florida native plants generally grow well and require little care when grown on proper soils under the right environmental conditions. By choosing the right native plants, you may be able to use fewer pesticides and less water.
