Many counties in Florida now require that new commercial landscapes contain a percentage of native plants. Native landscapes are easier to maintain, use less water and thrive without chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Native Florida Plants describes every type of regional flora―-from seaside foliage and wildflowers to grassy meadows, shrubs, vines, and aquatic gardens―-in 301 profiles and accompanying color photographs.

Review:

A handy manual for newcomers to Florida whether new homeowners or tourists. (National Garden Clubs, (Www. Gardenclub.Org))

Native Florida Plants by Haehle and Brookwell updates the list of native plant nuseries in addition to adding a number of new plant profiles not included in the 1999 edition. And it includes the family names of plants in an additional appendix, making the book useful as a text. Add to your Florida collection. (Georgia Tasker Miami Herald)

As in the first edition, Brookwell's beautiful photography helps novices with plant identification and the easy-to-read format gives quick information on plant characteristics and growing conditions. (Charlyne Varkonyi Schaub South Florida Sun-Sentinel)

Haehle and Brookwell detail plants that are successful in the diverse climates throughout Florida. (Gainesville Sun)

Page after page of plant pictures and information making identification muche asier. (Florida Times-Union)

Whether you are interested in trees, shrubs, perennials, vines or aquatics, this book will help you choose a native plant for the task. Informative. (Becky Wern, Georgia Times-Union)
