The oldest botanical garden in the Southern Hemisphere is famous for its giant water lilies with leaves that span two metres across. The Pamplemousses Garden, formally known as Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden, also features native spices, ebony trees, sugar cane and around one hundred species of palm. These include the Talipot Palm, which flowers only once every sixty years, the Toddy Palm, the Sealing Wax Palm and oddly named tree species such as the Marmalade Box Tree, the Fish Poison Tree and the Sausage Tree.
