"An indispensable reference. . . . Every Florida gardener should have this book."--Florida Times-Union
"If you live in Florida, this book is for you. . . . It is the best book I have seen on the subject."--Horticulture
Florida Landscape Plants has been the standard plant-identification manual in Florida for students, nurseries, homeowners, and visitors for over 30 years, providing information for over 400 landscaping plants for North, Central, and Southern Florida!
An entire page is devoted to each plant, accompanied by an illustration and detailed description for identification purposes. The common and botanical names are given followed by detailed information on growth habit, foliage, flowers and fruits, landscape uses, habitat, light and soil requirements, salt tolerance, culture, propagation, and pest control. The authors, realizing that most plant enthusiasts and home gardeners are not trained botanists, have kept technical expressions to a minimum and have provided a glossary to explain essential scientific phrases.

"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.

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.
