Although the lotus and papyrus are symbols of Egypt, it is the date palm
that dominates the landscape. The Nile Delta and the Nile River Valley have a
rich variety of trees -- some indigenous, some imported -- including the
tamarisk, acacia, eucalyptus, mimosa, jacaranda, cypress and sycamore as well as
a wide variety of fruit trees from citrus to fig to mango.
Other fruits and vegetables flourish in the fertile land along the Nile, as well as a vivid array of flowers from the rose, poincianca, lotus (of course), jasmine, lily and bird of paradise. A multiplicity of grasses grows along the Nile as well.
