The Flower Forest is a tropical paradise located in the heart of the Barbados countryside! This botanical garden is home to a multitude of majestic palms, colourful shrubs and tropical flowers.
Today I was able to virtually visit with http://www.heygo.com & Gina our guide.
It is hard to imagine that it was once a sugar plantation as it resembles nothing of the sort today - a true conversion! To say that the garden is expansive is an understatement. It covers a whopping 53 acres.
Just some of the flowers & palms we saw.
Anthurium (Anthurium Inflorescence)
Red Ginger Lily (Alpinia Pupurata)
Heliconia (Heliconia Rostrata)
Ixora (Ixora Coccinea)
Many of the flowers are not indigenous to the island. It has been speculated that most species of flowers and plants in Barbados either found their way by accident in cargo or clothing via ships.
