Boquete is surrounded by beautiful mountains Flowers Fair in Boquete Panama 2013 – Best Places In The World To Retire – International Livingwith dense forest and exotic trees and plants. It's year long spring-like weather allows the growth of all kinds of flowers as well.

In April from 11th to 20th then they will have the Orchids Expo.

Panama is one of the most ecologically and bio-diverse areas on the planet. As the land bridge between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, the magnitude of plant variety is astonishing. The Smithsonian Institute has been cataloging plant species since the early 20th century--and they aren't finished yet! The cloud forest around Boquete is lush because it is located in a tropical convergence zone where wind currents and weather patterns from east, west, north and south all get together and party! Ornamental banana at Finca Luz – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThe result is lots of sunshine, lots of rain, moderate temperature--in short, the perfect environment for plants of all types to grow. Species from temperate, subtropical and tropical climate zones all  flourish in the encouraging climate and rich volcanic soil. There are poinsettia TREES here. Hibiscus bushes/trees with blossoms the size of dinner plates. Elephant ears bigger than VW Bugs. Orchids grow...everywhere. Rosemary shrubs 5 feet tall.  Fence posts burst into foliage. I am considering planting a row of No.2 pencils...
 
Here at Finca Luz with Cloud Forest Botanicals, we grow a wide variety of herbal botanicals--some in open gardens, some in covered growing areas. The intense sun in the summer and the heavy rains of the rainy season do present some challenges.
