 Dear Linda,
Thanks for letting me know 
 I'm so sorry. It's not just the money although that is appalling, but the fact that a bunch of idiots can do this. I find it hard to believe that in a supposedly free society that you can be punished so outrageously simply for growing a range of beautiful and exotic plants. I suspect that you will not submit and will not  transform your garden to an identikit  reproduction of those around you.
You need some specialist advice. You could be liable for fines of up to $1000 dollars or, be subject to  a law suit seeking the money and a court injunction to change you garden.
I'm sorry I thought for some reason that you were in Arizona, but here are the some links for Florida. Have a chat to SHORN and see what they can suggest. Good luck, and remember you're right! If I can help or if you just need to let off steam let me know

Hi David
The Florida taliban is fining me $50.00 a day.
