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.”

is amazing to see living things that no one has seen alive for more than 200 years.

I'd love to see some extinct animals too =)

So, what species is it?

And how does this:

It ... flowers abundantly in native North America from midsummer until early autumn.

... make sense? It's rare and flowers abundantly?

edit to add:
Nevermind, I figured it out.

Save the flowers unless you all want to perish! This is such a blessing to see this flower.

If it is anything like the common blackberry bush, that grows in North America, then please let this plant die as it has 200 years ago. Blackberry plants take over entire acres .

If it is nice and not obtrusive, then maybe let it come back.
