Xeric Landscaping with Florida Native Plants – back in print

In 1991, FANN (then AFNN) published the Xeric Guide to Landscaping with Florida Native Plants book that promotes the use of the Davis Vegetation Map of Florida’s native plant communities as a framework for plant selection. FANN modified the map’s plant community names and added the following information needed for successful planting:

    Brief descriptions of plant community soils, drainage and natural cycles
    Elevation drawings like the one above
    Plant lists identifying canopy & understory trees, shrubs, vines, and groundcover plants
    Plant lists for difficult areas (medians, parking lots, retention)
    Exceptional plants
    Florida native palms
    Horticultural hardiness zones (8a through 11) added to the map in 2010

The book is a widely used reference for both landscape professionals and native plant enthusiasts, and has long been one of the state recommended references for landscape architects. Out of print for several years, it has been reprinted in 2011 and is now available with an updated climate map. Handsome coil binding for ease of use.

If you want to order more than one copy or have questions, please contact FANN.
