Overview

The standard landscape plant manual for Florida now revised and expanded!
 
From reviews of the original edition:
 
"The bible of Florida landscaping. . . . The book has listings for more than 400 plants containing excellent information about cultural and climatological requirements and such interesting tidbits as seasons of maximum color and how the plant is best used in the Florida landscape."-- Cape Coral Breeze
 
"One of Florida's best garden manuals. . . . All residents of Florida will find much useful information to help them with their garden problems in this book."--John Popenoe, former director, Fairchild Tropical Gardens
 
This is the revised and expanded version of the book that has long been the standard landscape plant manual for Florida. The authors have included 70 additional native plant species along with updated botanical names and additional general information on many of the plants. They have also removed all invasive exotic species from the book.
 
Each description contains a detailed drawing for easily identifying the plant, and both the common name and the botanical name are given. Following the general description are entries on propagation, soil and light requirements, culture, hardiness, salt tolerance, pests, and landscape uses. Descriptions of foliage, fruit, and flowers are enhanced by useful information about the season of maximum color.

    Well Worth the Money!

    This reference has everything you need - if you are beginner or expert, this book informs you how, where and why to plant. Very simple to understand-straight to the point. Could use some updating. Many new plants not listed in the text. Well worth the buy even still..good resource
