The National flower of Suriname is the 'fajalobi' (passionate love) or ixora, which is mainly grown in the coastal plains in gardens. Suriname's rainforests are home to several orchid species. As they mostly grow high in trees, their beauty can seldom be seen, however. Other flowers, such as the heliconia and the passionflower, can be seen when they bloom.
