Abstract: Ornamental plants are plants which are mainly grown for their aesthetic value, however there are many ornamental plants that have medicinal uses as well. On Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) campus, many ornamental plants have been identified on the campus as having medicinal properties, with special attention being centred on the plants with antitumour or anticancer properties. This paper sought to identify ornamental plants with anticancer and antitumour effect and contents indentified. The paper reviewed the following plants which were identified; Belamcanda chinensis, Codiaeum variegatum, Catharanthus roseus and Nerium oleander. It is hoped that this review will lead scientists into identifying the active principles, activity and safety of these ornamental plants.
