In order to make sure that your home has the best landscaping on the block, you have to start by planting the right flowers, bushes, trees, and grass. Plants are not one size fits all, so what thrives in Oregon won’t necessarily work in Florida and vice versa. If you’re looking to make some upgrades to your home’s landscaping, keep reading for our best Florida recommendations.
While blue salvia is native to the Southwest United States, it also does well in Florida. ITs purple or white flowers are on display most of the year, even maintaining some blooms through winter depending on the temperatures. Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love blue salvia and will keep your garden well pollinated.
It does best in full sun and drained soil and thrives in the heat. With the Florida temperatures, it is reliable as a perennial flower.
Another perennial flower in Florida is the gerbera daisy. They’ll grow to about knee-high and will maintain their flowers from spring until fall. The foliage is stunning both in the garden and trimmed in vases!
Trees and Shrubs
While this plant is not native to Florida, it does thrive in full sun or part shade spaces and is tolerant to drought. It’s relatively low maintenance and only needs a trim about once a year if it’s beginning to look overgrown.
If you want to plant something that won’t just look good but also produce delicious treats, then you should definitely opt for a citrus tree. Citrus trees thrive in the south and central Florida climate. We recommend mandarins, tangerines, oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and lime trees.
