Florida, with over 4,100 species of native or naturalized ferns and seed plants, is the third most floristically diverse state in the United States.The final word on a plant's indigenous status in Florida. I've used it several times to identify a roadside plant.
The Atlas of Florida Vascular Plants provides a source of information for the distribution of plants within the state. It also serves as a resource for the the Guide to Vascular Plants of Florida (Wunderlin, 1998; Wunderlin and Hansen, 2003) and for various regional floras, such as Clewell (1985), Long and Lakela (1971), and Wunderlin (1982).
