Shoreline Spotlight: The Worst Invasive Plants - Fort Myers Beach Talk
Estero Island, and they are not hard to find. The county and the Town of Fort Myers Beach will remove invasives from any county property and town-owned property, but not private property. Homeowners are encouraged to have them removed. Garden centers, representatives from the University of Florida Extension office and experts from the Florida Pest Plant Society or Florida Friendly Yards program will come to your house and identify any invasives you may have. You can also email a picture to any of these institutions for help. Why does the state (or why should you) care about invasives? When invasives are introduced to a new ecology, they can spread quickly and take over where native plants were formerly established, mostly because the pests that kept the plants from becoming invasive in their 'home' territory do not exist in the new area. An example is the highly invasive Brazilian Pepper Tree, which in Brazil has a native beetle that covers the leaves with saliva and destroys the young plant. Brazillian pepper spreads rapidly without this pest. They are now covered with red peppercorns, and are visible all along San Carlos Boulevard and Summerlin Road as well. Birds eat the peppercorns, then pass them through their digestive system, where they are 'deposited' wherever a bird can fly, like mangrove islands, the Matanzas Pass Preserve, Bunche Beach, Bowditch Point, and your backyard. I have listed the top three invasives found on our island, but that is just a sample. Complete lists can be found at the University of Florida extension: plants.ifas.ufl.edu/plant-directory/ There is also a color photo directory which I find most helpful at this link: www.plantatlas.usf.edu The first invasive I will focus on is the Australian Pine. These are native to Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. Even though it is a dead ringer for a pine, it is not actually classified as a pine at all. It can reach 90 feet tall, and since roots spread shallowly, it is not well suited for hurricanes and frequently snaps or falls over in high winds. It grows very fast and can quickly shade an area and crowd out native vegetation. It spreads by seeds, which are dispersed by birds,... Nov 15, 2018
Six gardens that green Southwest Florida year-round
For info: 621-8299, www.peacerivergardens.org.
Edison & Ford Winter Estates, Fort Myers. Thomas Edison was Fort Myers' ultimate victory gardener. While he planted for practical reasons - materials to use in his inventions - his wife, Mina, was all about esthetics, and you can witness that at her eponymous Moonlight Garden. Plantings throughout the property's 26 acres reflect the tastes and work of the Edisons and the family of Henry Ford next door. During the garden festival, more than 40 garden vendors from around Florida will be selling exotic and tropical flowering plants and trees. Catch a 10:30 a.m. behind-the-scenes garden tour every Wednesday, year-round. 239- 334-7419, www.edisonfordwinterestates.org.
ECHO, North Fort Myers. Committed to solving the problem of world hunger, this non-profit garden has been developing groundbreaking techniques for urban farming for decades. Its tours on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays are fascinating exposés on innovation and practical solutions. 239-543-3246, www.echonet.org.
The Botanical Gardens at Sanibel Moorings, Sanibel Island. This seaside resort has built lush gardens and a reputation for tropical vegetation that the public can see on 90-minute guided tours every Wednesday at 11 a.m. through November. Advance reservations are required. This time of year, you may be able to sample some jackfruit and see giant crinum lilies in bloom among the more than 2,000 species of plants. 239-472-4119, www.sanibelmoorings.com.
Manatee Park, Fort Myers. Most equate this park with the bulbous lovable marine mammals that give it its name, but in addition to seeing manatees during the cold months, visitors can see butterflies and learn a little about native vegetation. The Coccoloba Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society has planted and maintains native plant habitats and gardens on the grounds. The park boasts an extensive butterfly garden and is a demonstration landscape for the Florida Friendly Landscaping program. It also devotes a small ethnobotany garden to vegetation that grew when the Calusa lived here, with signage that explains how the natives used the different plants. 239-690-5030, www.leeparks.org.
