Florida Garden Select Plants

If you’d like to find great plants for your landscape, a wonderful resource is the Florida Garden Select program.

Sponsored by the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association (FNGLA), this program is designed to promote the use of superior and proven Florida plants.

Each year, the Florida Garden Select program releases a short list of plants that are ideal for most Florida gardens. Only the best plants make the cut, after being judged by a group of growers, landscape professionals, and University of Florida faculty.

A few standout plants on the 2013 list include yellow trumpet tree, Wendy's Wish salvia, and dwarf fakahatchee grass.

Visit the FNGLA website to view pictures or learn more about current and previous Florida Garden Select plants.
