FNPS Landscaping Brochure

Here is the new Southeast Regional FNPS Native Landscaping brochure (Brevard to Dade). One side shows 63 recommended native landscape species in their "right place" (sunny-dry soils, for example) with at least 6 species for each light and soil-moisture zone. The other side has basic native landscaping tips and recommended links and books for additonal information. You can get a copy at any Broward Chapter event.

Below is a more comprehensive, but less beautiful, list of Broward County native landscape and ethusiast species using the same light and soil-moisture zones and sorted by plant size. This comprehensive list is a full pallet of species landscapers might consider to design innovative native landscaping in Broward. Note the nurseries and other excellent landscaping resource links below.

Butterfly Plants


Native plants have longstanding relationships with wildlife and many birds, butterflies, pollinators, and other creatures require a particular native species for food, reproduction, essential chemicals, or health. Below are three plant lists that help you match butterflies with the native plants they require or desire.
