Can anyone name enough edible Florida native plants (if not Florida native, then Florida friendly) for each layer of this food forest so that something in each layer is in bloom year round, if possible?...

Root layer
Ground cover
Herbaceous
Shrubs
Bushes
Vines/Climbers
Under story trees
Canopy tree

So, you have to know if it's...
Florida native or friendly,
what zones, 10a or 9b.
whether or not it is edible to humans,
when it is in bloom,
and what layer of a food forest it fills.

Do these questions make any sense and could someone not just answer them, but also, recommend videos/books for a new comer to learn more about these kinds of things? (I had come across someone asking these things after watching the Geoff Lawton food forest lecture, so I'm quite ignorant and looking to be pointed in the right direction).


Will my bacteria migrate from vetch and cowpea to my acacia? I wonder if I can inoculate my acacias under my walnuts by planting vetch or clover with inoculant? I suspect they will migrate to the acacia root over time or after the small legumes die? Or are they different species?
