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:

(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?


  1. Very nice. I'm trying to increase the amount of plants in my yard that are native too and interplant with veggie and fruits. I love the beauty berry!!

  2. Sounds like a perfect way to spend a paycheck! Love all your choices, esp. those first berries. I'm still living vicariously through you. Spring? What's that? ;)

  3. I love this post because this has been exactly what I have been starting to do! Introducing more natives would be GREAT! :)

  4. Staci-I look forward to seeing your veggies and fruits mixing with the others in your garden!

    Kim-It's comin'!

    The Bama Gardener-Natives are the way to go!


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts!
