We've updated the index to our inventory of South Florida plants to include thumbnail photos in order to make it more useful. It's also been split over three pages, still in alphabetical order by their generally accepted common names. Of course a species might have any number of generally accepted common names. We've included alternatives on the actual plant page, and in some cases, alternative scientific names as well. If you can't find a particular plant in the index, try the search box below. Each page includes photographs, scientific names, key identifying features, cultural and medical uses and how it fits within the South Florida ecosystem. Many pages have USDA distribution maps showing a plant's North American and Florida range. Each page also has links to sources beyond our site.
