Englewood is also home to many fruit
bearing trees. The lemons, grapefruit,
oranges and mangoes on your table could
come from trees in your own backyard or
from down the street.
Flowers you will find here include the
classic beach sunflower, orange canna lily,
bromeliads and hibiscus of all colors and
many more. If you want to know more about
planting a garden or are just curious about
the plants and trees you see every day, visit
the Florida Native Plant Society website
www.fnps.org. You can join the local chapter
at www.mangrove.fnpschapters.org, or you

Editor’s Note: Our community is so rich with
wildlife and vegetation we can’t begin to present
all of it here. We hope you enjoy experiencing
our amazing natural environment.
