The Limestone Coast is home to an extraordinarily diverse range of native vegetation (flora). Native vegetation refers to any naturally occurring local plant species which are indigenous to Australia, from small ground covers and native grasses to large trees and water plants.
Sand dune formation often starts with a native beach plant - it traps sand blowing in the wind, forming small mounds or hummocks of sand. Wrack also helps build sand dunes by catching sand and seeds and then providing nutrients and moisture to the plants. Over time these mounds grow with the plants providing structure and stability.
2021-9-24 · There are about 650 known species of carnivorous plants, out of a total of 300,000 or so vascular plants. Most of the 650 are found in bogs.

The natural habitat of allspice in Jamaica is limestone forest. Although allspice is planted on a wide range of soils, a well-drained, fertile, loam limestone soil with a pH of 6–8 suits the crop best. Pimento grows well in semi-tropical lowland forests with a mean temperature of 18–24 °C, a low of 15 °C and a maximum of 32 °C.
