Landscaping with Florida Native Vines

Classroom B

Vines are a forgotten group of native wildflowers not often seen in public or private landscapes, yet they deserve space in our gardens. Some have very showy flowers, some attract a bounty of butterflies and other pollinators, many species attract resident and migratory songbirds, and some serve as important larval hosts for butterflies and moths.

Vines can be particularly helpful to:

  • Add color and privacy to a chainlink fence.
  • Add shade and color to an arbor across a formal entranceway, or to a pergola over a walkway.
  • Use on trellises or even as groundcovers to add interest to gardens.
  • Use to deter entry onto private property.

The instructor will present several Florida native vines and discuss how to select and use them.
