Hong Kong has a rich flora and is covered in many places with quite a lush vegetation.

The rich flora in Hong Kong reveals to us the fascinating plant diversity and adaptations, documents the available plant resources, and provides an aesthetic living environment.

The lush vegetation improves the air and water quality, prevents soil erosion and water runoff, and provides food and shelter for the local fauna.

This web-site invites you to get to know and appreciate our flora and vegetation.

Partial support for construction of this web-site came from Quality Education Fund (Hong Kong) and The Chinese University of Hong Kong (Courseware Development Grant).
