Pine Rockland

Melissa Abdo
Pine Rocklands are the most floristically diverse habitats in Florida, and home to many rare and endemic plants. Dominated by the South Florida slash pine (Pinus elliottii var. densa), there is also an array of species that lives below. If you live in Miami-Dade County and are interested in planting pine rockland plants and helping to connect pine rockland conservation areas, join Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden’s Connect To Protect Network!
