Portland Ridge is a dry peninsula in the south of the Parish "Clarendon". Numerous plants can be conveniently studied along the coastal road.The red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle) serves as an example. The mangroves carry so-called propagules, 10 to 15 cm long. They are sexually produced young plants attached to the mother plant. They finally fall off and drift in water until they strand at a favorable site, develop roots and give rise to a new plant. One can speak of the red mangrove as of a viviparous plant. Along the road occurs also the Jamaican national flower Lignum vitae (Guijacum officinale) and the seaside mahoe (Thespesia populnea) among others.
