Costa Ricaover has over 15 different ecosystems and transitional zones !!
Flowers changed the face of the planet. Without them, the world we know Ė even man himself Ė would never have existed. ~ Loren Eiseley, American anthropologist, 1907-1997With over 15 different ecosystems and transitional zones, itís no wonder Costa Rica is a botanistís and gardenerís delight. Even if you canít tell the difference between a heliconia and a jacaranda, you can appreciate the verdancy and color of Costa Ricaís flora. Itís everywhere you look. And so is beautiful impatiens, an imported flower that blankets the floor of shady forests, especially along roadsides. They are wonderfully colorful but are pushing out native plants.
