Flora

Peru Coastal Flora

The coast of Peru is usually barren apart from some cacti that grow there. The river valleys also contain unique plant life. The highlands above the tree-line is known as puna, where bushes, cactus, and drought resistant plants extend up the zone of snow-capped mountains.

Amazon Rainforest

The very wet Amazon Rainforest contains useful lumber and resins. It also has a wide variety of strange canopy plants and palm trees.

Andes Cloud Forests

On the lower slopes of the Andes are steep-sided cloud forests. Here you’ll find moss, orchids, and bromeliads.
