Below is a list of cultivated native plants for this zip code. These plants, all within their historical range in this geographic area, are appropriate for use in landscaping here. By planting these native species, you will not only create a low-maintenance landscape to enjoy, but you will also contribute to the conservation and restoration of South Florida’s environment.
