Mangroves: Our MOST important coastal plants!

Mangroves are one of the most important plants when it comes to our coastal systems. Not only are these plants tough enough to tolerate the salinity of the shores, but also provide habitat and structure to sustain their coastal ecosystems. Today we look at the three most common species in our area; The Red Mangrove (R. mangle), the Black Mangrove (A. germinans) and the White Mangrove (L. racemosa) and show you how to identify them, and exactly what makes these plants so unique.

Grab our Planting and Watering Guide to make sure your next project is a success!

Knowing how to properly install and water a plant is just as important as choosing the plant itself! Based on the University of Florida’s recommended procedures, this guide will give you what you need to know to grow out happy and healthy plants!
