Ficus is out – So what to put in? The Town is here to help

Our Gardens  |  October 30, 2019

The Ainslies and the Maguires decided on a Florida Friendly option, the Califillum, to replace their shared ficus hedge. But there are a number of native Florida plants that also make great ficus hedge alternatives.

Town of Palm Beach Facilities Manager, Paul Colby, says you may want to take a drive by the Town park located on N. Park Avenue just east of Bradley Place, to check out the Florida natives, Simpson’s Stopper and Jamaican Caper, that were planted as ficus hedge replacements about a year ago.

As part of its Green Initiative, the town will be replacing its ficus hedges, and showcasing native and Florida friendly alternatives at all of the Town-owned locations, over the next few years, as the ficus replacement programs continues. (Return to Newsletter)
