Native Plants

In keeping with our mission to restore and protect the nblackberries at green burial siteatural areas of PCCC, we require that any gravesite plantings be made with native plants. Certain areas of the cemetery are designated as “wildflower meadow” and “open woodland.” These areas are being managed for the dual purposes of beauty and ecological restoration. As our land management plan evolves, we may designate certain areas where memorial tree planting will be allowed. But until that time… native small plants, shrubs and wildflowers are great memorial choices for on and around grave sites. Lists of appropriate wildflowers, shrubs, and trees are available by contacting PCCC or by checking The Florida Native Plant Society’s website.
