Palm Beach County Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society to host Annual GARDEN TOUR in Northern
From 9 am to 3 pm on Sunday, November 10, participants can visit five unique private gardens and two public gardens, all landscaped with Florida native plants: one in North Palm Beach, four in Jupiter and two in Palm Beach Gardens.
+ Forchheimer Butterfly & Bird Garden
9714 Honeysuckle Avenue in Palm Beach Gardens
This butterfly and bird friendly yard is an inspirational example of a landscape in transition from a traditional Florida tropical exotic yard only four years ago, to a native garden full of life.
+ Byrd Hammock Garden
6713 Heather Circle West in Palm Beach Gardens
Look no further for a prime example of a neighborhood native plant continuum. The Byrd garden, a mature hardwood hammock, provides nectar plants for butterflies emerging from the Forchheimer's host plants as well as shelter for birds.
