Florida Landscape Plants: Native and Exotic, second revised edition
by John V. Watkins, Thomas J. Sheehan, and Robert J. Black
480 pages 6 x 9 Paper: $19.95 ISBN: 0-8130-2838-8 Pubdate: 6/30/05
This is the revised and expanded version of the book that has long been the standard landscape plant manual for Florida. The authors have included 70 additional native plant species along with updated botanical names and additional general information on many of the plants. They have also removed all invasive exotic species from the book.
Each description contains a detailed drawing for easily identifying the plant, and both the common name and the botanical name are given. Following the general description are entries on propagation, soil and light requirements, culture, hardiness, salt tolerance, pests, and landscape uses. Descriptions of foliage, fruit, and flowers are enhanced by useful information about the season of maximum color.
John V. Watkins, former professor of environmental horticulture, devoted his professional life to teaching courses in landscape horticulture at the University of Florida.
Thomas J. Sheehan is professor emeritus with the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Florida.
