Plants for Wildlife

Installing hardy native Florida plants not only provides food and shelter to the wildlife but also enhances their habitat. Individual plants like the Southern Live Oak yields copious crops of acorns. These acorns are relished by local wildlife including:

  • Whitetail Deer
  • Wild Turkey
  • Squirrels
  • Jays
  • Woodpeckers

Other plants, such as the Saw Palmetto, produces bouquets of fragrant yellow blossoms that are a favorite nectar source for native pollinators and honeybees. While the Northern Bobwhite quail shelter under the dense fronds of the Saw Palmetto.

The Firebush plant is named for its year-round abundance of striking flame-red and orange flowers. These vibrant and colorful flowers are a magnet for many species of butterflies and hummingbirds. The fruit of the Firebush is also favored by cardinals, mockingbirds, and many other birds.

No matter which species of wildlife you want to attract and provide for, Lake & Wetland’s native planting plan enhances and beautifies your property for the local wildlife.
