What is a weed?  The term weed can have different meanings to different people, in this case we are referring specifically to invasive plants in your landscape.  For guidance, refer to species listed in the 2019 FLEPPC List (both category I and II)

Plant native! We encourage you to replace invasive plants with native plants in your landscape.  Learn more about why this matters from the Florida Native Plant Society and locate native plant vendors near you through the Florida Association of Native Nurseries.
