6 Plants and Flowers Native to Florida That You May Not Know About - Florida Insider

The Porter weeds Stachytarpheta spp.) come in many wide varieties of flowers, and they can be found not just in Florida but in countries such as Jamaica, Bahamas and other areas all over the Caribbean and Asia. The Porter Weed gets its name from medicinal properties bestowed upon them in the Caribbean and in Florida.
Some of South Florida’s native plants may not be as striking as some of their more exotic counterparts. However, some do possess attractive foliage, colorful fruits, or add a pleasing form or texture to the landscape. South Florida has a wide variety of native plants that are both attractive and useful as landscape plants.

The Marlberry (ardisia escallonioides) is actually a fast-growing, evergreen small tree or shrub with dark green foliage. Clusters of small cream-colored flowers make this plant an attractive sight to behold. The plant also provides fruits for birds. It grows about 10-15 ft. tall, although it can get as tall as 20 ft. They can be planted with other flowers and plants in the same space, creating a beautiful, scenic view of a garden or front yard. Their multiple trunks can stand out when trained well into a small tree and can be lighted at night, creating a magnificent display.
5. Jamaican caper
Another interesting flower native to our sunny Florida (Miami) is the Jamaican caper (capparis cynophallophora). Jamaica caper flowers are quite showy, with two-inch-long purple stamens and white anthers and white petals. The evergreen, glossy leaves of this small shrub are folded together when they first open up to give the plant a bonze appearance. They can be trained into small plants as well, working well in soils with good drainage.

The bougainvillea (Nyctaginaceae) is a popular, pretty-flowered plant here in warm Miami, Florida. Indeed, it is a popular ornamental plant that can be seen hung as a decoration in many south Floridian homes and gardens. Although native to South America (“buganvilea” in Portuguese and “buganvilla” in Spanish is representative of the languages spoken in this continent’s countries), bougainvillea is very populous here in M...

Growth in Gardening: Weathering our weather - San Marcos Daily Record
Here is a tip, watch temperature lows, and if temperatures dip below 30°F, cover vulnerable trees with a large blanket or tarp. This will not save your crop if the temperatures dip too low, like if it is in the teens for several hours, but it might help save your potential fruit load through a cold winter night or two.
You can find the critical temperatures for frost damage on fruit trees online for your specific variety. Bookmark the page when you find the one you like as it is a great resource for predicting bud kill at various temperature lows.
Laura O. of Dripping Springs sent a question about pruning her fruit trees. Since so many of us care so much about enjoying tree-ripened fruit, I’ll stay on the topic of fruit trees for one more tip to answer Laura’s question. Typically, we would break out our pruning tools when flower buds begin to swell and start to snip away, thinning the buds so that the resulting fruit is not crowded on the branch. This means bigger fruit at harvest time. However, for years with weather like we are having this year, it may be hard to know how much damage has been done to flower buds. Here is my suggestion, just relax and wait a little while, at least until the flowers emerge and you can take a closer look searching for evidence of frost damage — brown or black tissue means some damage has taken place in the flower center. If a large percentage of flower buds are damaged, prune them away but make sure not to prune off those that do not show evidence of damage. It makes sense to prune a little later (at bloom) than usual for early developing tree fruit like apricots, peaches and sweet cherries, during strange weather years.
My brother asked me during our New Year’s party if I thought it was a good idea to start the vegetable garden a bit early this year, considering the warmer temperatures. My suggestion to him, and to you, is to suppress your burning desire to plant your vegetable garden early. Warm weather in January or February does not necessarily mean temperatures will stay mild through spring.
Remember, gardeners plan vegetable garden planting times around the average last spring frost and warm winter weeks have no bearing on spring frost dates. So, what does that mean for us? Each winter, on average, our risk of frost is from Dec. 6 through Feb.
17. Almost certainly, however, we will receive frost at some point from Dec. 28 through Jan. 23. We are almost guaranteed not to get frost from March 15 through Nov. 14. Our frost-free growing season runs around 292 days — which is a lot — so be patient and start your seeds inside instead. Spring will come eventually.

Growth in Gardening: The healing power of nature - San Marcos Daily Record
Walt Whitman knew this when he weighed what makes life worth living as he convalesced from a paralytic stroke: “After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, love, and so on — I have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear — what remains? Nature remains; to bring out from their torpid recesses, the affinities of a man or woman with the open air, the trees, fields, the changes of seasons — the sun by day and the stars of heaven by night.”
Simply put, the human spirit longs to be a part of nature and not apart from nature. I would highly encourage you to get out into your garden or visit the many wonderful gardens that can be found nearby, such as the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center or Austin’s Zilker Park, or the San Antonio Botanical Gardens. All amazing day trip locations. I promise that you won’t feel worse for the visit.
