Landscape and Flora in Madeira, the island of flowers


The landscape and flora on Madeira is very similar to that seen in tropical countries making it a remarkably interesting and atmospheric island. If you venture out of Funchal you will see banana trees commonly being cultivated - there are even a few gardens full of banana trees in Funchal if you look closely enough! Madeira is a country with high mountainous regions and lush landscapes giving it a very tropical feel.

Sweet smelling gardenias gow into large trees and shrubs. There are flowering trees with blossom of unsual colour such as hyacinth blue and purple.

There are a number of gardens to visit with many different species of plants to admire, such as cacti, orchids, succulents and many more.
