The Palmetto

The Palmetto is the official magazine of the Florida Native Plant Society. It is provided to members as a thank you for supporting the Society and its mission. The Palmetto is published quarterly and includes articles on native plants, native landscaping, Florida ecosystems, invasive species and their control, potential effects of climate change, native edibles, and many other subjects of interest to members.


Selected articles from older issues of the Palmetto are provided here as a service consistent with educating our members and the public on native plant species, and the state of conservation science and management as they apply to furthering the mission of the Society: The preservation, conservation, and restoration of the native plants and native plant communities of Florida.
