What is a Native Plant?

For most purposes, the phrase Florida native plant refers to those species occurring within the state boundaries prior to European contact, according to the best available scientific and historical documentation. More specifically, it included those species understood as indigenous, occurring in natural associations in habitats that existed prior to significan human impacts and alterations of the landscape.
