Petal Pushers

Native plant propagation is the work of the Pawpaw Chapter Petal Pushers who collect seeds and grow natives for distribution to members and the public.

Pawpaw chapter members regularly volunteer their time to various projects that promote the FNPS mission to preserve, conserve, and restore the native plants and native plant communities of Florida. This includes maintaining the chapter demonstration garden at South Daytona's Park of Honor, roadside cleanups on the chapter's adopted section of State highway 40 west of Ormond Beach, native plant propagation plus projects to study and protect the chapter namesake plant, Deeringothamnus rugelii.

The mission of the Florida Native Plant Society is to promote the preservation, conservation, and restoration of the native plants and native plant communities of Florida.
