Suzanne Valencia, President of the Conradina Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society details the Florida Natives Tour
This garden tour presented by the Conradina Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society lets you visit five yards with predominantly native Florida plants in their landscaping. Talk to the homeowners and Conradina Chapter FNPS volunteers about selecting and caring for native plants. Information will be shared about watering, fertilizer and pesticide usage. The yards of this tour contain at least 75% or more of Florida native plants. In many cases, the homeowners made a gradual change from non-natives to Florida natives. Every yard has plenty of stories and visitors - like the frequent visits by birds and butterflies.
