Perdido Key Coastal Demonstration Garden
Installed in 2022, the Perdido Key Coastal Demonstration Garden was designed to showcase native coastal species and landscaping techniques for coastal and barrier island homeowners. The garden is located next to the Perdido Key Visitor and Community Center at 15500 Perdido Key Drive.
All species used in the garden are approved for use under the Perdido Key Habitat Conservation Plan and will survive the salty, sunny and sandy conditions found on barrier islands. Additionally, the native species used in the garden help enhance and connect natural habitats across Perdido Key. They also provide food and shelter for native wildlife, including the critically endangered Perdido Key Beach Mouse.
Signage provides visitors with additional information on the techniques used and species showcased, and a free landscaping brochure is available for download.
