Rare Flowers That Are Stunning To Look At

Gibraltar Campion

This magnificent flower is considered one of the rarest and is found on the high cliffs of Gibraltar. The plant was believed to be extinct outside Gibraltar since the late 1970s and by 1992 all traces had vanished and it was officially declared extinct. However, in 1994 a hiker on the cliffs of Gibraltar found a single specimen and its egg was transferred and propagated in the Millennium seed bank and now this plant grows in the Alameda Gibraltar Botanic Gardens and the Royal Botanic Gardens in London.
