Do You Live in South Georgia?

If you are reading this blog then you probably know about all the information and pictures you can find about invasive species at Invasive.org and GAinvasives.org. But do you know where to look for information and pictures on native plants specifically for South Georgia? All of South Georgia is part of the Coastal Plains which stretches from southeastern Virginia to eastern Texas. The plants and planting conditions in this region can vary considerably from those found in North Georgia. A great website to check out is CoastScapes: Earth friendly native plant landscaping. Topics from conservation landscaping to gardening for wildlife to water quality are covered with the focus specifically on South Georgia. CoastScapes website.
