Discover Flora France

The island's flora varies depending on the altitude. Scrubland dominates below 3,300 ft, where vegetation includes myrtle bushes, arborescent heathers, cistuses, strawberry trees and asphodels. Green oaks, cork oaks, olive trees, and chestnut trees are also commonly found at this altitude. Pine and beech forests are dominant between 3,300 ft and 6,000 ft. Above 6,000 ft, vegetation is rare and consists mainly of grasslands.

    Tenacious vegetation

    Even in the middle of the rocks the shrubs resist the heat and the aridity.

    The pines

    The scrubland where many rivers flow is lovely to visit, especially in spring when the flowers start to bloom.

    Cork oaks

    These oaks are sometimes uprooted by the strong winds that blow on Corsica's coasts.
