Florida Shade Trees

Our collection of shade trees provides cooling shade, shelter, beauty and community ecology. At our Garden Center, we also have magnificent Magnolia trees, Ligustrum trees, the brilliant scarlet orange or yellow Poinciana tree and the popular Live Oak and Sweet Gum.

  • Bald Cypress will live for hundreds of years. People in both urban and rural areas can benefit from them, and they enhance the aesthetics and storm water drainage.

  • The Red Maple shade tree can live up to 150 years and is tolerant of drought, and its leaves are a food source for several forms of wildlife, such as butterflies.

  • The Florida Black Olive Tree makes a wonderful and very large shade tree that needs a great deal of room at maturity. It has the appearance of a large Umbrella and delightfully shelters one from drops of rain in a park area or pathway.

  • The Jacaranda tree’s sizzling, violet blue floral blossoms grab your attention like eye candy. From April to June, the Jacaranda covers itself with showy shaped trumpet-shaped flowers, truly beauty at its best.

  • The South Florida Slash Pine is an evergreen conifer that has relatively long needles, with a thick, plate-like bark that grows 60 to 100 feet. Some birds, such as the Bald Eagle and the endangered Red-Cockaded Woodpecker, nest in these slash pines.

  • The popular shade tree, Gumbo Limbo, is used in backyards, patios or along streets and highways. It readily sprouts from branches stuck into the ground and is sometimes used to plant natural, living fences. It is also considered one of the most wind-tolerant trees in South Florida, so it is recommended as an investment as a good hurricane-resistant tree.
