We only plant Native Florida plants here on The Island including, Tick Seed, Fire Brush, Cypress Trees, Florida Anise, Lantana, Sea Grapes, Saw Palmetto, Milk Weed, Fakahatchee Grass and Black Eyed Susans.
Why is Native Planting so important?
In Florida, every body of water is important. From beautiful beaches to underground springs, water systems are crucial to Florida’s industry and image. At Pridgen, we strive for native Florida landscaping that complements local bodies of water. Even small lakes and watersheds are served best by native plant life, both in and around the water. Native Florida plants benefit bodies of water by fostering wildlife, reducing water pollution and encouraging proper drainage.
Winter Wonderland is back again, and we’re excited to celebrate the festive season all December long. In addition to our well-loved activities like daily “snow” flurries, the Christmas tree forest and our 24-ft tall tree, and visits from your favorite Christmas characters, Santa is inviting all the good boys and girls for the first time ever to his Workshop, right here at Wekiva Island.
