Stanley Park's plants come in all shapes and sizes. They display a variety of life-styles. Not all of them are green. Most, but not all, produce sugars and starches from earth, air, water, and sunlight through the process of photosynthesis.

The plants you meet in the park today present a living history of life on earth.

Plant diversity is not haphazard or accidental but provides us with an accurate picutre of Stanley Park's climate, soil, topography, and history of disturbance.

Today, Stanley Park is home to over xxx plant species. The count changes as species die out, re-establish themselves or arrive for the first time. In the past 200+ years, human acivity has reshaped the natural plant community.
