How well your plants perform depends on whether you choose the right plants for the right place.

  • Look for low-maintenance plants that are suited to your site and that’ll require minimal irrigation, fertilization, or pest control, once they’re established.
  • Think about how much sun your site receives and choose plants that will work with your location and conditions.
  • Group plants based on their water needs.
  • Always take into account how large plants will get before you purchase and plant them.

By choosing the right plant for the right place, you can help create a Florida-Friendly landscape that looks great, conserves water and protects natural resources.

Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ in a Minute is a production of the University of Florida’s Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program, IFAS Extension, and WUFT-FM in cooperation with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
