One of the rarest flowers in the world which is now extinct in the wild has been successfully grown in a part of Britain where it disappeared 200 years ago. … It has oblong, succulent leaves and flowers abundantly in native North America from midsummer until early autumn.
A spokesman for the Royal Botanical Gardens said the plant is very difficult to grow and is ”extremely rare” in Britain. He said: ”The plant is very delicate and usually only stands a chance if it is kept in a greenhouse. ”However in Cornwall, the environment would make it possible to grow outside. ”These plants are very rare especially in Britain so it is great news to hear that a nursery has been able to make it flower and seed.”
