Establishing A Wildflower Garden in South Florida

A wildflower garden can be gratifying endeavor for gardeners that prefer an informal or "cottage garden" look, but growing one can be challenging in South Florida. Wildflowers commonly purchased at the big-box retailers act more like annuals here and often die out quickly in our hot and humid summers; that's usually because they're not suited for our area. The solution can be in selecting Florida native wildflowers that can withstand our local climate.
