One of the best ways to attract local wildlife to your garden is to plant native trees and shrub that they like to eat or nest in. Here are two options to help bring birds to your garden.
Simpson’s Stopper (Myrcianthes
Beautyberry (Callicarpa species) is the ideal fast-growing shrub for Southeastern Florida native gardens. These can also reach about 4 feet in height. In the spring, this shrub has delicate pink flowers that grow at the junction where leaves meet the stem. This eventually gives way to the ultimate showstopper: bunches of purple berries in the late summer and autumn. The berries last well into winter even when the leaves are gone, or until the birds finish off the last clusters of berries. Beautyberry is a source of color in the winter landscape.
