Florida Native Plant Society
The Passionflower Chapter is one of 35 Florida Native Plant Society (FNPS) chapters throughout the State whose mission is preserving, conserving, and restoring the native plants and native plant communities of Florida.
Passionflower serves the southern portions of Lake County including Clermont, Groveland, Mascotte, Ferndale, Montverde and Minneola as well as the far west portions of Orange County including Oakland, Ocoee, Winter Garden and Windermere. In this area we work to share information about native plants, Central Florida ecosystems and wildlife, and conservation and habitat restoration initiatives.
