Native Florida Plants For Shady Landscapes

“Shaded areas in gardens can be just as appealing as a sunny rose garden. Huegel takes the mystery out of how to use a palette of shade-tolerant Florida native plants to transform dim areas into a beautiful oasis. Follow his expert advice and you'll have it made in the shade.”—Roger L. Hammer, author of Attracting Hummingbirds and Butterflies in Tropical Florida   “A volume of useful experience and information that is easy to read and inspiring to put into practice for a better use and enjoyment of shady gardens.”—Monica Moran Brandies, author of Shade Gardening for Florida   “This book covers the many nuances of Florida’s shade and helps readers select the best native plants for the shady spots in their landscapes.”—Ginny Stibolt, coauthor of Organic Methods for Vegetable Gardening in Florida   “Provides both a comprehensive examination and solutions to the intractable problem of gardening in the shade in Florida.”—Rufino Osorio, author of A Gardener’s Guide to Florida’s Native Plants   Because of Florida’s tropical and subtropical climate, it is especially important for the state’s gardeners to incorporate areas that provide refuge from the heat and sun. Yet little is available about how to garden effectively for shade so that the end result is varied, attractive, and ecologically vibrant. Until now. Craig Huegel discusses the many variables and complexities of shade gardening in Florida. He explores options for canopy, shrubs, and the colorful annuals and perennials that can tolerate even the darkest of areas. The compendium of flora presented will surprise general gardeners and native plant enthusiasts alike.

Loved the information in this book. Having 3 other Florida native plant books for home landscaping, I wasn't sure if this was just going to be the same information rephrased - which is NOT the case. It's been a really helpful guide for planning out the woodsy area on the property that we just cleared of Brazilian peppers. Having the shade tolerant native plant species grouped in one resource is immensely helpful when sitting down to plan out the landscape. In addition to highlighting native plants for shade I've never noticed (really excited to learn about the native Rhododendrons), it also gives good information on getting plants established in shade while minimally damaging existing root structures and other landscaping advice. Definitely recommend!

Dr. Huegel has done it again! What a great book. Beautiful photos of the plants, good explanations of where and how they grow---which is especially important for those of us in Sub-tropical Southern Florida! Can't wait to add several of these lovely plants to my extended garden. And who knew that Jack-in-the-Pulpits can grown in Broward County! Awesome!

I read this lovely picture filled book from cover to cover as soon as I received it and promptly changed my landscaping plans. This rises to the top of my library and will be my primary resource for my evolving shade garden (i.e. my yard) until his next book.

Excellent book from Dr. Huegel, use it to design your shady landscape and add diversity to your established plots!
