From Nursery to Nature:  Are native cultivars as valuable to pollinators as native species?
by Annie S. White

This is our first-ever comprehensive list of cultivated Broward native species grouped by light-moisture zone and sorted by size. Finally, you can see all the species that are suited to a paricular landscape site. For example, look at all the cultivated Broward native species that will grow in a sunny, sandy, well-drained, drier zone. Choose the ones that will be the right height for your site when they are fully grown. Includes an index, if you can't find your favorite species in the expected zone. Get addtional details for every species listed at RegionalConservation.org, "Natives For Your Neighborhood."

This file (.docx 1.1M) contains all the information in the new SOUTHEAST REGION FNPS Native Landscaping brochure (Brevard to Dade). It is not yet FNPS Board approved; edits will be made. Once funded, it will be a beautiful map-like poster with native landscaping tips on the reverse side. We are seeking $20,000 to publish 60,000 copies statewide in six regional versions of the brochure. Until then, you can look up these species on the Natives for Your Neighborhood site. FNPS regional plant recommendations have the advantage of: 1) making native landscaping a little more accessible to the public statewide, 2) simplifying what-to-plant-where with light and moisture zones for 63-species, 3) and promoting a set of plants that growers and nursery wholesalers might provide throughout a region. We are currently working on a comprehensive list of native species specifically for Broward. It will use the same light-moisture zones (sunny-dry to shady-wet) that make it easier for people to put the right plant in the right place.


The short film below was produced, directed, and filmed by Jennifer Brown. Debra Klein conceived it and the FNPS Education Committee (Debra Klein, Ellen Broderick, and Richard Brownscombe) was executive producer. Enjoy this prairie field trip with Roger Hammer and Craig Huegel.
