Waterwise plant database

The online waterwise plant database contains many of Florida’s landscape plants and is organized based on each plant’s natural environmental requirements. This database can be sorted by plant characteristics.

In addition, it is possible to organize plants into groups by hydrozone. This will create a plant palette that is appropriate to the specific site. It is encouraged that applicants will use this tool as a basis for documenting Florida Water Star landscape compliance. Refer to the frequently asked questions section of the waterwise web pages to learn how to best use this database. Additional plant resources may be incorporated in the development of the plant palate and should be documented in the case of their use.
