Many counties in Florida now require that new commercial landscapes contain a percentage of native plants. Native landscapes are easier to maintain, use less water and thrive without chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Native Florida Plants describes every type of regional flora---from seaside foliage and wildflowers to grassy meadows, shrubs, vines, and aquatic gardens---in 301 profiles and accompanying color photographs.
