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.
- Landscape & Enthusiast Plants Native to Broward (improved July 2017)
- Florida Native Plant Society's native plant resource pages https://fnps.org/plants which include planting zones, wildlife uses, etc. for Broward County.
- Institute for Regional Conservation Website with native landscape and enthusiast species found in the southern counties of Florida
- Native Nurseries list
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.
- Host Plants for Scarce South Florida Butterflies (sorted by plant)
- Nectar Plants for Scarce South Florida Butterflies (sorted by plant)
- South Florida Butterflies and their Native Plants (Broward County list)
- Scarce South Florida Butterflies and Host Plants (sorted by butterfly)
