The habitat suitable for gumbo limbo is along coastal shores in hammocks, an English nautical term describing a mound of trees that can be viewed from a sailing vessel, visible on the horizon. The dingy purplewing butterfly uses the tree as a larval host, Stingless bees, flies and ants pollinate the flowers and white-eyed vireo birds disperse the seeds.
