I've been reading that site for a while and really love the profiles on various natives. They also have some of them for sale.

When you plan gardens and food forest systems, I feel it's important to include habitat and living space for native species. Plant native plants and you'll attract a variety of useful insects, birds, reptiles, etc.

Plus, you're doing your part to keep Florida plants growing. It's no secret that I'm a fan of some "invasive" species, and I like growing crops from all over the world... but I also love to see the wonderful variety of plants that would have been seen by the early explorers of our very blessed peninsula.

Check 'em out.
