Our Wildflower Garden includes plants that were part of the “Old Florida” natural landscape. The wildflowers in this garden are native to our local environmental conditions. Most of these wildflowers are perennials and will bloom only at certain times of the year.
Native wildflowers require less water than other plants. Florida’s most valuable resource is water, making native wildflowers a good choice for your garden. Wildflowers are easy to grow, and they attract and nourish wildlife, including birds, bees, beneficial insects, and butterflies. Wildflowers also improve soil health, prevent erosion and improve water quality.
Wildflower gardening can be extremely rewarding. Plant some wildflowers and you will be making a positive impact on our local ecosystem.
