SHRUBS FOR HOME LANDSCAPING IN NORTHWEST FLORIDAAssembled by Jody Wood-Putnam, Bay County Master Gardener&Julie McConnell, Horticultural AgentUF/IFAS Extension Bay CountyThe shrubs included in the following lists are selected for their suitability for home landscape plantings in Northwest Florida. These listswere developed for the purpose of recommending shrubs to plant for recovery after Hurricane Michael.Using the Planting ListsBoth the scientific and common names are given as well as typical heights and widths for adult plants. Consider the eventual size of plants ina landscape design and consider the location of plants relative to power lines and other structures. General moisture requirements aregiven. Locate plants with similar moisture requirements together. Consider light requirements throughout the year. Preferred lightrequirements are bolded in the below lists. Consider planting a combination of evergreen and deciduous plants to provide interest in thewinter as well as seasonal variations. Special features of plants to include flowers, berries, fruit and attractiveness to wildlife are listed in thecomments section. For additional information to include growth rate, soil pH, drought tolerance and salt tolerance, consult your county’sUF/IFAS Extension office or consider using the Florida Yards & Neighborhoods Florida-friendly Plant Database g with Native PlantsThey are adapted to the Northwest Florida environment to include the climate (temperatures, rainfall, humidity, etc.) and soils (often verysandy, mostly acidic). Planted in the right place, they can minimize maintenance work and costs to include watering, fertilizing and- soilamendment. Probably the most important reason to use native plants though is that these plants are required for food and habitat for ournative wildlife, many of which require specific native plants to thrive.

EVERGREEN SHRUBSThis list contains shrubs that normally maintain their leaves in the winter as well as palms of less than 10 ft. height. These plants can play avery important role in the winter garden.Scientific NameCommon NameAbelia X grandifloraGlossy AbeliaMatureHeight/Width6’ – 10’ high6’ – 10’ wideMoistureRequirementsWell drainedLightRequirementsSun to partshadeAcca sellowianaPineapple Guava8’ – 15’ high8’ – 15’ wideWell drainedSun topart sunAgarista populifoliaFetterbush, PipestemBaccharis halimifoliaGroundsel Bush, Saltbush8’ – 12’ high5’ – 10’ wide8’ – 12’ high6’ – 12’ wideWell drainedto wetWell drainedto wetPart shadeto shadeSunCallistemon spp.BottlebrushCamellia spp.Camellia6’ – 30’ high6’ – 15’ wide3’ – 20’ high5’ – 20’ wideWell drainedSun to partsunPart shade toshadeCephalotaxus harringtoniaJapanese Plum YewConradina spp.False Rosemary, Scrub MintFatsia japonicaJapanese Aralia, FatsiaGardenia jasminoidesGardeniaIlex glabraGallberry3’ – 10’ high5’ – 10’ wide2’ – 4’ high2’ – 4’ wide5’ – 8’ high3’ – 10’ wide4’ – 8’ high4’ – 8’ wide6’ – 8’ high8’ – 10’ wideWell drainedMediumdrainedWell drainedWell drainedWell drainedMediumdrained towetPart shade toshadeSunPart shade toshadePart shade tosunPart shade tosunCommentsNative?Semi-evergreen, white to pink flowersperiodically spring through fall, attractive foliageand inflorescences on several cultivarsFlowers with white petals and prominent redstamens, edible fruit, attractive to wildlife, maybe trimmed to a hedgeFragrant white flowers in spring, archingbranching structureWhite fluffy flowers in fall attractive tobutterflies, high salt tolerance, somewhat loosestructureRed flowers spring, summer and fall, attractive tobirds and pollinators, medium wind resistanceAttractive foliage and beautiful flowers of manyshapes, sizes and colors, bloom in fall/winterwhen few other plants are flowering, slowgrowingAttractive dark foliageNoLavender flowers, bluish/grey foliage, evergreen,attractive to butterfliesLarge attractive dark green leaves, interestingwhite flowersAttractive foliage, fragrant white flowers insummerSmall white flowers in spring followed by blackberries on female shrubs, attractive to birds andother wildlife.YesNoYesYesNoNoNoNoNoYes
