Symbol Name Information Image Alternatives
Callicarpa americana Callicarpa americana (Beauty Berry) Deciduous or semi-deciduous, course-textured native shrub with open growth habit. Bright purple berries, which form in summer and persist through the following spring, attract wildlife. To 8'. Prune in spring prior to flowering to maintain at desired height. Image  
Coccoplum Chrysobalanus icaco (Cocoplum) Evergreen, native shrub with glossy deep green leaves. New growth on "red-tip" variety is, you guessed it, reddish. Will attain height of 10' if allowed, but easily maintained as a loose hedge with regular pruning, 3-4x/year. Image Pittosporum tobira
Hamelia patens (Firebush) True H. patens is native to FL but there are many non-native versions being sold under the native label. Non-native form has potential to displace native populations and doesn't behave as well in landscape. Evergreen shrub to 10' with tubular orange-red flowers year-round. Cold weather turns normally light green leaves a deep maroon color. Excellent wildlife due to flowers, fruit and shelter potential. Image  
Muhlenbergia capillaris (Pink Muhli Grass, Gulf Muhly Grass) Clump-forming, native ornamental grass attains height and spread of 3-3.5 feet. Blooms fall through winter with "clouds" of pink flowers that can engulf entire plant. Color fades to bronzy-tan by winter's end. Upright habit, very fine texture. Image  
Plumbago auriculata (Blue Plumbago) Weak-stemmed, evergreen shrub to 6' high, but rarely seen that tall, as stems collapse under their own weight, creating arched effect. Prune to keep compact habit. Fast grower so even harsh pruning stops year-round flowering for only a few weeks. Another "true" blue flower, but white varieties also available.
