See South Florida native plants you don’t know but should be using!

South-Florida-landscape-elevation550
South Florida’s rockland hammock and pine rockland plant communities are home to beautiful tropical native plants that are little known and used in the landscape industry. These plants should be used more to restore authenticity, resiliency and true sustainability to South Florida’s urban scene. When you step into the Exhibit Hall, you’ll see a beautiful little example of what Real South Florida looks like. You can put a little Real Florida back into South Florida by spec’ing these plants in your designs, requesting them for your projects and asking for them at your local garden center. FANN nurseries are growing them. All we need is you.
