Dominica has a wide range of flora, due, in part, to the high altitude and the rainfall.
The flora is incredible :There are over 1,000 species of flowering plants, including 74 species of orchid and 200 ferns.
The national flower is the bwa kwaib.
On the west coast, there is an abundance of showy flowers including the orange, pink and yellow lantana, and the bottle-brush-like flowers of the campech.
Red, yellow, and green heliconias, and the purple leaves of the blue wax flower, are among many gorgeous species which can be found throughout the interior.
