Project Description

Littoral Plants (Seasonally-flooded plants)

Littoral are seasonally flooded native plants that provide many benefits to Florida water bodies and ecosystems.

-Provide a natural habitat and ecosystem for native birds, ducks, fish, butterflies, and other plant life.

-Assist with erosion control on lake banks by colonizing and rooting into the soil

-Help clean and aerate the water

-Add to the beauty of the lake, river, pond, or canal

-Fulfill requirements set forth by county municipal codes

We offer many different varieties depending on the application.  Our preferred species are ones that form an aggressive root system and produce beautiful blooms that attract butterflies and dragonflies.  Call us today for a FREE estimate! (239) 560-6923
