Tick flowers are like tiny sundrops, so it makes sense that they are the official wildflower of the Sunshine State. There are more than 100 different species and cultivars of ticks, but most are bright yellow with a brown ring around the center. Like most wildflowers, they bloom in spring and summer. The USDA has developed “plant hardiness zones” that represent the lowest annual temperatures in an area.
The zones range from 1a (the coldest) to 13b (the hottest). Florida's hardiness zones range from 8a in the northwest to 11a in the southeast. Know the hardiness zone in your area and always make sure that a plant is suitable for your area before buying it. Otherwise, your plants could freeze and die in winter.

Native to scattered parts of the Florida Panhandle, the Stoke aster produces beautiful light blue composite flowers. The Ohio spider (Tradescantia ohiensis) is a charming little perennial wildflower native to North and Central Florida.
Since Florida is their “home,” they have adapted to survive in the local climate and resist local plant pests and diseases. These perennial lilies belong to the amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae) and are found throughout Central and North Florida. Burr marigolds are prolific plants in the Asteraceae family that thrive in Florida's wetland habitats. Florida has 16 native species of bromeliads, and one of the most interesting is the tuft aerial plant from the West Indies (Guzmania monostachia).
You can let them grow tall and use them as a hedge or windbreak, or you can prune them shorter as an ornamental plant in the landscape. The native grasses that will be used in this layer are wire grass (Aristida stricta), pine seed (Sporobolus junceus) and love grass (Eragrostis spp. Coral honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) is a beautiful flowering vine native to central and north Florida. Before starting my own backyard prairie six years ago, I first visited places where I could see native Florida wildflowers and grasses in a natural setting.
Florida has several beautiful native azaleas, such as the Florida Flaming Azalea (Rhododendron austrinum) and the Southern Pinxter Azalea (Rhododendron canescens). The Florida swamp lily (Crinum americanum) belongs to the amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae) and thrives in Florida's swamps and wetlands. The prairie will be approximately 2,700 square feet and will include 25 species of wildflowers and grasses native to Florida. .
