Question:

What is the national flower of Jamaica? I am getting a couple of different answers. Thank you for your assistance.

Answer: August 21, 2008


The Lignum Vitae is the National Flower of Jamaica. Its' name, when translated from Latin, means “wood of life” – probably adopted because of its medicinal qualities.

The short, compact tree is native to continental tropical American and the West Indies. In Jamaica it grows best in the dry woodland along the north and south coasts of the Jamaica.

The plant is extremely ornamental, producing an attractive blue flower and orange-yellow fruit, while its crown has an attractive rounded shape. Its small purple blossom is what we label as Jamaica's national flower!
