Reduce your gardening workload and "go native." This colorful, photo-packed guide helps you select Florida-born plants right for you and your area. No ill-suited, high-maintenance exotics here. You'll find full information profiles on every type of hardy native plant from seaside foliage to wildflowers and grasses, shrubs, vines, and even aquatics. It just makes sense to use plants that already thrive in the Sunshine State.

This attractive book shows 281 native plants in beautiful full-color photos. Landscapes and gardens using these natives are easier to maintain, use less water, thrive without chemical pesticides and fertilizers, and provide havens for wildlife. You're sure to be inspired by the representative landscape designs suited for city, country, and fresh-water or seaside locations. Add a few native plants to your landscape, create a native garden or water garden, and bring on the butterflies.

When you go NATIVE... you work WITH NATURE... so you WORK LESS.
