Great Landscape Trees of Central Florida
I am interested in finding out what people think are really great landscape trees that can be used in central Florida. by "landscape," I'm not looking for trees that are thought to be touchy or difficult, but can be successfully grown by most anyone. As well, they should offer good looks most of the time and a feature of some sort, some of the time. As I drive through subdivisions, it seems that there is an endless supply of Live Oak... like that's all anyone knows. What other trees excite people? Could be flowering or shade. Please say a little of what's good about the tree and also, what problems it might have. Thanks in advance for your input. I heard from one source that 'October Glory' red maple has a tendency to develop cracks. Does anyone know if this is true?
I'll start the list by adding Tabebuia, both pink and yellow. They're so beautiful in bloom! (Anyone know if they have issues?)
