Discover Flora The islands of Guadeloupe

Dreaded by all of the Guadeloupian people, the manchineel is a tree whose acidic sap burns the skin. Careful, some are planted near the beaches. Its fruit looks like a small yellowish apple.
Conversely, the sea grape produces small delicious fruits that look like edible grapes.
Each season has its own blossoming. The Poinciana tree, a long rangy tree, becomes purple as soon as the first rains fall. The yellow, pink or red flowers of the bougainvilleas, the colourful alamdandas and the hibiscuses brighten up the gardens and the sides of the roads. In the underbushes, the flora contains porcelain roses, anthuriums, orchids, tropical amaryllises, and even lavender from the Antilles.
