But we natives are not the only ones that thrive here. Florida is also home to many exotic trees and other plants.

We encounter vines such as the Sweet Autumn Virginsbower and the Winter Creeper. There is no shortage of exotic shrubs like the Oregon Grape and the Japanese Privet. You will find many non-native herbs here as well including Queen Anne's Lace and Chinese Silvergrass.
