Happy New Year! January’s topic is Mangroves. Mangroves are a select group of trees that thrive in salt water.
Florida mangroves are found in three plant families (Rhizophoraceae,
Acanthaceae, and Combretaceae). There are three native species of mangroves, Red, Black, and White.
There is one invasive species, also called black mangrove. Yes. Common names do suck. Please bring in at least 3 plants, which needn’t necessarily cover the topic.
The Native Plant Workshop is FREE. Meeting time has been changed to 5:00PM, but is still the third Tuesday of each and every month. We convene at the Miami Dade College Kendall Campus’s Landscape Technology Nursery in the northwest corner of the campus. Please park inside of the gate.
