Citrus Chapter

Florida Native Plant Society

Welcome !

Welcome to the Citrus Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society. 

We would like to invite you to join us in learning about native plants and native plant communities.  Join us to learn about sustainable landscaping and creating habitats that will attract and support native pollinators, butterflies, birds, and other wildlife.

Participate in our special events such as field trips and conferences.  Participate in Florida Native Plant Society events including virtual programs on many aspects of botany and plant ecology.


Chapter Meeting March 2 - Barbara's Bits 
Our featured speaker will be Master Gardener and Citrus Chapter favorite, Barbara McCormick. With no in-person meetings, we've missed having "Barbara's Bits" every month, but Barbara will be joining us online this month to share her garden know-how. March is the border of gardening season, and we'll learn when it's safe to start winter/spring pruning, and how to be more successful with new plants, with techniques to help establish them properly.

This meeting will be virtual. Click on the link: YouTube or Facebook


Field Trip March 9

Please join Deborah Curry, our monthly program speaker for April on Endangered Plant Preservation, on a field trip on the rare Dicarandra in the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway. For more information go to Our Calendar.
