Oceanic Islands

This display highlights the unique floras of Oceanic islands, and the intense conservation challenges they typically face. The Canary Islands feature prominently, with ornamental species such as Marguerite daisies, succulent Aeonium and drought-resistant Lavenders. These plants illustrate the dramatic evolution of different forms on different islands, a common dynamic of deep-ocean archipelago floras.
