Florida Native Plants

This gallery provides a selection of mostly Florida-native plants that should be considered when creating a landscape plan for a building in central coastal and/or south Florida.

For easier review and selection, plants are grouped according to their types. In general, recommendations are made based on minimal supplemental watering requirements, high drought tolerance, high salt tolerance, and their suitability for sandy soil conditons.

For further information, please review the sources of material used for this list, which include the following:
