The Importance of Native Plants for Our Ecosystem
Native plants benefit people and the world around them. South Florida's unique micro-environment can be harsh to living things. Spring drought and summer floods, coupled with poor soil and extreme heat make it difficult to grow many exotic plants. For thousands of years native plants have been evolving to deal with these conditions. Native groundcover, shrubs, vines, trees and palms can add great beauty to the landscape while reducing the required water, fertilizer and maintenance. Plant natives to attract wildlife, such as birds and butterflies.
