Have you ever wondered what the best trees to plant in Tampa are? Continue reading to gain a few great ideas.
Southern Florida has a unique climate that allows it to grow particular plants. Because it’s a mostly tropic climate with hot, humid weather and plenty of rain, it shares some similarities to islands like Hawaii.
As a result, you’ll notice that the native plant species are tall, thick, and vibrant. But what about when you need to plant new flowers and trees in your backyard?
Below are some common species that you’ll find throughout the Tampa area. And if you need help planting your new trees, you can always call Tampa Tree Service for the best assistance around!
The Flatwoods Plum tree is also native to Virginia and Texas, making it a real coastal southern staple. However, it’s easy to confuse these trees with the Florida Sand Plum.
Flatwoods Plum produces smaller fruit compared to other plum tree varieties. Another interesting thing to note is that they have some of the latest blooming seasons, with fruits hitting maturity in late summer/early fall.
These trees are common because they usually top out at around 20 feet tall. They are also a thinner tree, allowing several to get planted in an unoccupied area of the yard.
The Simpson’s Stopper, or Twinberry, as it’s also called, is really a type of shrub. However, it quickly fills out, making it comparable to a tree when in your yard.
This species is a type of honeysuckle plant, and it seems to love the Southern Florida environment. Not only is it cold resistant, but it’s salt resistant, and pollution typically doesn’t harm it either.
These factors make a hearty plant that takes off, making it ideal for privacy needs. And best of all, birds love the tiny fruit it produces!
