Are You Obsessed?

Spring Obsession is coming to Lakeland this weekend. 
Here's our post from last year's event:

The desire to plant more natives is stronger than ever.
The focus is on low maintenance and Florida-friendly plants
that provide food and shelter for local wildlife.

These are some of the plants I'll be looking for:



Beautyberry
(birds loves these berries!)




Mondo grass
(doesn't get more low maintenance than this!)




Native Salvia
(friend to butterflies)




Blue Daze
(part of the "blue garden" makeover)




Native blue-eyed grass
(easy grower with no muss, no fuss)



African Iris
(blooms like nobody's business)




Guess where some of my paycheck this week
is gladly going?
