Florida Landscape Plants: Native and Exoticby John V. Watkins, Thomas J. Sheehan, Marion R. Sheehan
This long-awaited edition is a modernized and expanded version of the book that has been the standard landscape plant manual in the Lower South for nearly 30 years. The authors, all horticulture experts, have added 70 additional native species, new illustrations, updated botanical names, and a useful listing of invasive exotic species that are now not approved for landscape use. Each entry includes common name, botanical name, phonetic pronunciation, description, soil and light requirements, culture, hardiness, salt tolerance, pests, and landscape uses. In short, Florida Landscape Plants has everything you need to easily identify and cultivate ornamental plants in Florida and the Gulf region.
