Dendropanax laurifolius is a tree in the family Araliaceae. It is endemic to Puerto Rico, and is found in moist regions of forests at middle or high elevations.
Today the garden still contains numerous trees planted in the early 1900s. It contains good collections of palm trees (Butia, "Phoenix canariensis", Washingtonia, hemp palm, and dwarf palm), evergreens (camphor, "Cocculus laurifolius", "Photinia serrulata", mimosa, "Lagunaria patersonia", and "Grevillea"), and deciduous trees (catalpa, white poplar, "Koelreuteria paniculata", "Maclura pomifera"). Its plantings include Liliaceae (agave, cordyline, dasylirion, dracaena, yucca), and cactus and cycads (Cycas, Dioon, Encephalartos), as well as "Cocculus laurifolius", euonymus, oleander, etc.
With the general warming of the atmosphere and the consequent withdrawal of the ice, flora surviving from Tertiary times could not re-establish their range in southern Europe; the new post-glacial climate was drier than that of the Tertiary. The original tropical European flora evolved into the present Mediterranean sclerophyll flora. The distribution of some surviving species, such as "Cistus laurifolius", moved to wetter areas such as the mountains. Due to this, "C. laurifolius" is named in Spanish in its distribution area as "mountain rockrose", although in the coastal west and northwest Iberian Peninsula, it is found at sea level.
The tree grows in limestone and serpentine substrates in forested habitat. Other plants associated with the tree include "Daphnopsis philippiana", "Dendropanax laurifolius", "Guettarda ovalifolia", and "Miconia sintenisii". The nectar of the flowers on cultivated specimens is harvested by the carpenter ant "Camponotus abdominalis" var. "floridanus".
Cistuses are suitable for sunny gardens with a nearly frost-free Mediterranean climate. The hardiest of the species is "C. laurifolius", which survived the hard frost at Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in 1895 that eliminated all the cistuses save this and two white-flowered natural hybrids, "C." × "corbariensis", already grown by John Tradescant the Elder, and "C." × "loretii", a 19th-century introduction.
The larvae feed on "Cistus" species, including "Cistus laurifolius". They mine the leaves of their host plant. The mine starts as a corridor at a brown spot near the petiole, following the leaf margin and widening into a blotch at the leaf tip. From there, a branch extends back into the blade.
The larvae feed on "Cistus ladanifer", "Cistus laurifolius", "Cistus monspeliensis", "Cistus populifolius" and "Cistus salviifolius". They mine the leaves of their host plant. The mine consists of a long, often contorted, narrow corridor that hardly widens towards the end. The frass is deposited in an interrupted central line that never occupies over one third of the corridor width. Pupation takes place outside of the mine.
The garden surrounds a Provençal bastide at the foot of Mount Coudon. It features an alley of old olive trees, an alley of stairways bordered by very old plane trees, oleander trees, and an irrigation system using gravity and a system of wells, springs, fountains and basins at different levels.

Some species belong to the true laurel family or Lauraceae, but many have similar foliage to the Lauraceae due to convergent evolution. As in any other rainforest, plants of the laurel forests must adapt to high rainfall and humidity. The trees adapted in response to these ecological drivers by developing analogous structures, leaves that repel water. Laurophyll or lauroid leaves are characterized by a generous layer of wax, making them glossy in appearance, and a narrow, pointed oval shape with an "apical mucro" or "drip tip", which permits the leaves to shed water despite the humidity, allowing perspiration and respiration. The scientific names "laurina", "laurifolia", "laurophylla", "lauriformis", and "lauroides" are often used to name species of other plant families that resemble the Lauraceae. The term "Lucidophyll", referring to the shiny surface of the leaves, was proposed in 1969 by Tatuo Kira. The scientific names "Daphnidium", "Daphniphyllum", "Daphnopsis", "Daphnandra", "Daphne" from Greek: Δάφνη, meaning "laurel", "laural", "Laureliopsis", "laureola", "laurelin", "Laurelindorinan", "laurifolia", "Cistus laurifolius" (Laurel Rockrose), "laurifolius", "lauriformis", "laurina", "laurophylla", "laurocerasus", "laurus", "Prunus laurocerasus" (English laurel), "Prunus lusitanica" (Portugal laurel), "Corynocarpus laevigatus" (New Zealand Laurel), and "Corynocarpus rupestris" designate species of other plant families that resemble Lauraceae. The term "lauroid" is also applied to climbing plants such as ivies whose leaves resemble those of the Lauraceae.
Cocculus laurifolius (laurel-leaved snail tree) is a medium-sized tree of the genus Cocculus. It is native to Japan and China. It commonly grows to the height of 40 to 60 ft, with a spread of 20 to 40 ft. Form is round headed with a medium to fast growth rate and a coarse texture. Leaves are simple, Large (6 to 12 inches) with a whorled bud arrangement. Leaf color is medium green with a fall color of poor yellow green. Flowers are showy white with yellow spots in the spring. Fruit is an elongated capsule that starts out green and turns brown in the fall. It can be 8 to 20 inches in length. Plants are best used in a naturalized area. Will take almost any kind of environmental condition and is quite hardy to cold.
There are 64 relict plant species, 6 of which cannot be found elsewhere in the European Union — Strandzhan oak, Caucasian whortleberry, Colchic holly, twin-flowered daphne ("Daphne pontica"), tutsan ("Hypericum androsaemum") and "H. calycinum". The Pontic rhododendron is the symbol of the park and an important relict species with a highly disjunct areal in Europe where it inhabits only the north-western Iberian Peninsula and Strandzha. There are 56 endemic plant species, including local endemics ("Veronica turrilliana" and "Anthemis jordanovii"), western Black Sea coast endemics ("Silene caliacrae" and "Lepidotrichum uechtrizianum"), 6 Bulgarian endemics ("Pyrus bulgarica", "Oenanthe millefolia", "Galium bulgaricum", "Veronica krumovii", among others) and 40 Balkan endemics, such as "Saponaria stranjensis". 113 species are listed in the Red Book of Bulgaria, including several species that within Bulgaria can only be found in the park — "Ophrys reinholdii", "Verbascum bugulifolium", "Sideritis syriaca", "Cistus laurifolius", among others.
Cistus laurifolius, commonly called laurel-leaf cistus, laurel-leaved cistus or laurel-leaved rock rose, is a species of highly branched flowering evergreen shrub native to some areas around the Mediterranean. It grows high. The branches are strong and erect, with reddish bark that is easily removed in strips. The leaves are larger than in the other species of "Cistus", up to long, lanceolate, dark green, while the underside is whitish due to trichomes. The flowering occurs in late spring (May–June), later than most rockroses. It bears white flowers with a yellow spot in each petal, of 4.5–5 cm diameter It is widely cultivated in gardens, and has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
