The work described herein produced a list of 87 species recommended for use in the design of rain gardens, bioswales, and bioretention cells in the Caribbean Islands. Plant palette selection for green infrastructure projects in the world tropics is an area of ongoing research that still needs significant work. Recommended technical specifications for the soils, topographic profiles, and hydraulic structures for water-focused green infrastructure in the tropics are now found in several publications, however, recommendations regarding the plant palette are almost non-existent. This publication is intended as a useful starting point.
