The diversity of cultivated plants gracing the South Florida landscape is bewildering. Hundreds of species are "commonly cultivated." The staff and students of the Palm Beach State College Horticulture Program sort out the cultivated flora with information on uses, horticultural characteristics, identifications, and pronunciations.


Landscape Plants for South Florida includes native and exotic species organized under their plant families, with color photographs of the vast majority. Our goal has been to assemble "everything you need to know" about plant species for subtropical landscaping. If your thumb is green or if you would like it to be, this book should be at your elbow during garden planning.
