Abstract: The present study on ornamental potential plants of Kavanur panchayath of Malappuram District of Kerala reveals that, there are about 15 genera and 20 species of plants were distributed in the three major families such as Fabaceae, Caesalpiniaceae and Mimosaceae. The ornamental potentiality is mainly due to the good looking habit or plant parts along with the attractive beautiful flowers. The domestication of many wild plants in ornamental point of view is also an ex-situ method conservation approach for conserving the natural resources.
