Warszewiczia (or Warscewiczia) is a genus of flowering plants in the Rubiaceae family. They are primarily tropical Central and South American trees and shrubs. Perhaps the most famous member of the genus is W. coccinea (Chaconia), which is the national flower of Trinidad and Tobago.
This genus was named after Józef Warszewicz, a 19th-century Polish orchid collector and inspector of the botanic gardens in Kraków, Poland. Warszawa is also the polish name for Warsaw - capital city of Poland.
