What are Florida-friendly plants?

The University of Florida created the Florida-friendly Landscaping program. Utilizing Florida-friendly principles means using low-maintenance plants and environmentally sustainable practices.

Why are Florida native plants so important?

Florida native plants are the backbone of our unique ecosystem. They support all the animals in our area, including native birds, wild bees, birds, insects, and other wildlife.

Most of the state has nutrient-poor, sandy soil that our native species have adapted to grow in without the assistance of fertilizer or additional irrigation (if planted in the right environment). Additionally, Florida native plant species support our lucrative tourism, hunting, and fishing industries in the state.
