Aphrodite Hills has been horticulturally designed with flora that is endemic to Cyprus, together with exotic species such as bougainvilleas and hibiscus. In addition to the mature olive and carob trees, thousands of ‘Pistach lentiscus’ also dominate the landscape.
Numerous grasses supplement the area along with native flowering plants, which emerge year after year during the first rainfall in autumn and disappear during the dry and hot summer months. It is hoped that Aphrodite Hill’s decision to reduce uncontrolled overgrazing will help to restore native vegetation.
