This is the new SOUTHEAST REGION Landscape Plant List (Brevard to Dade) from FNPS. Once funded, it will be a beautiful map-like poster with native landscaping tips on the reverse side. 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.

Here is our December eNews. Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up for regular monthly email delivery (and usually a field trip reminder). Visit our local nurseries on Dec 12 (or anytime).

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 field trip with Roger Hammer and Craig Huegel.
