Native Plant Garden at the Rotary   
Centennial Nature Center   
About the Garden:
Professionally designed native plant garden maintained by Florida Master Gardeners, featuring locally sourced native plants typical to Honeymoon Island State Park. The garden was design and installed in 2014 and continues to educate park visitors in regards to native plant identification, use of natives in landscapes, conservative watering and xeriscaping, soil amendment, mulching and more. Many plants here benefit insects as larval hosts and pollen and nectar sources. Native animals also benefit from the seeds, flowers and plants as food sources and cover, including the gopher tortoises which reside nearby the garden area.
