The Florida Nursery Growers & Landscape Association (FNGLA) has named six plants as 2011 Florida Garden Select. Each year, a selection of Florida’s best plants are picked by a jury of distinguished horticulturists, each representing a unique facet of the state’s diverse nursery and landscape industry.
The 2011 selections were chosen for their exceptional appeal, marketability and projected success for Florida’s diverse climate and beyond.
The 2011 plants are:
–Gold Medallion Tree (Cassia leptophylla)
–Prostrate Yew (Cephalotaxus harringtonia ‘Prostrata’)
–Caranday Palm (Copernicia alba)
–’Snow Princess’ (lobularia hybrid)
–Yellow Butterfly Pea Vine (Callaeum macropterum)
–Mule Palm (X Butiagrus nabonnandii)
Florida Garden Select is administered by FNGLA, which represents Florida’s nursery and landscape industry with an estimated $15.2 billion in industry-wide sales. For more information, www.fngla.org.
