Plants of Ibiza

Here I treat some plants that have some relevance for Ibiza, mainly those that grow on this island. The photos in some cases are only shown on the Catalan pages. I also speak about their uses to support the use of local products.

Who is looking for the plants by their English names, have a look below on this page. Who is looking for them by scientific names, have a look here.

The decriptions of a plant in the four languages (Catalan, Spanish, German, English) are found on the same page.

Also on Facebook there are the Plants of Ibiza.
