Illustrated Review of some Garden Plants
In this review you will find information about some of the most remarkable plants in our organic garden. We mainly highlight the beauty and the use of our native plants. We do this because we value their ability to adapt to the particular climatic conditions of this region and their significance for wildlife species diets; also their rarity such as "Cardon", an endemic species in Costa Rica, specifically from Guanacaste, which makes it unique to this part of the planet.
We have also included some other introduced plant species whose characteristics you may want to know, we also encourage you to tour the garden and view the many other species listed in the report.
