Ice Plant Mesembryanthemum crystallinum
Blood-eyed Chrysanthemum Argyranthemum haematomma
The rocky cliffs of this island are home to the only endemic species that is exclusive to this small archipelago. The Sinapidendron sempervivifolium is a small bush of the family Brassicaceae with fleshy leaves and yellow flowers. The endemic Carrot Tree Monizia edulis can also be found on this island.
Though the vegetation here is very sparse, the presence of Blood-eyed Chrysanthemum Argyranthemum haematomma is noteworthy, being an endemic species whose flowers have purple disks when young.
The vegetation on this island has been well preserved and includes some of the endemic species found in Madeira, such as Beta patula and Phalaris maderensis.
