Take care of me - rare plants listed in the Red Book

It would seem that a person should save the plant? You just need to take care of him and create favorable conditions. And in the world there are many species of plants listed in the Red Book, on the verge of extinction. And why fight for them? What is the point of the plant? From him there is no use if it does not bear fruit. But after all, there is a recognized truth: it is beauty that will save the world ...

Die for love?

What plants are listed in the Red Book? For example, no matter how metaphoric it sounds, the flower symbolizing loyalty and love is edelweiss. Many nations give him legendary significance, they make poems, tales, and myths about him. The French, say, call it the Alpine star, and the French, the silver flower of the rocks.

Rare plants

According to legend, this wonderful flower can be seen only by a person who carries the purest, like dew, love into his heart. Edelweiss grows high in the mountains, on the tops of snowy peaks - he loves the sun and tries to be closer to him.Perhaps his subtle beauty, perhaps the mystical veil of adoration, he owes to his extinction.

Many wanted to get it, hoping for true love. Therefore, already at the beginning of the XIX century, only a few dozen edelweiss specimens remained in the world. Mainly, this flower grows in the mountains of Switzerland. And the government of this country took care of him.

Thus, a law was enacted that prohibits plant disruption, and a fabulous fine is provided for the violation. In addition to this, law enforcement posts are set up at the borders of the “Edelweiss Territory”, which do not let tourists into these places. Only through such tough measures, edelweiss is still preserved.

Snake Mouse

Not only beautiful flowers are dying out. An unimaginably disgusting and even eerie flower cannot protect itself either. The Chinese mouse visually resembles a nasty bat that sleeps on a branch. In addition, it has tentacles in length reaching 40 centimeters - they look like black snakes.

Yes, this flower causes fear and terrifies a normal person. But fans of gothic and unusual "black" beauty could well admire them. Myshetsvet preserved on earth only thanks to strange extreme flower growers and grows in private collections.Brrr, imagine how you can touch it?

Plants from the Red Book

Rare plants listed in the Red Book: bring me a scarlet flower

The red midlemist is the most rare flower in the world. On our planet at the moment it exists only in two copies. His discovery of this flower is obliged to the English gardener, after whom he is named.

The Scarlet Flower

In the middle of the XIX century, John Middlemist traveled to Asia. And he found his own scarlet flower in China - the young man was charmed by the unearthly beauty of the accidentally discovered red rose. He dug it up, took it home and planted it in the greenhouse of the British Kingdom. Quite unexpectedly, it turned out that in this way John was saved by the last of the specimens growing in the wild.

Tree species

There is a tree in the world that is older than our time ... Pine Methuselah is almost 5 thousand years old! Just think about it - maybe it still has seen primitive people? No wonder that this pine is named in honor of the biblical character. Methuselah is a long-liver who has broken all records.

To see this tree (which exists in the world in a single copy), you need to go to America and climb high in the mountains.It grows at an altitude of 3,000 meters in the mountains of White Mountains. But, unfortunately, it is unlikely that anyone will succeed.

Tree species

Pine Methuselah hide from prying eyes. Its exact location is kept strictly confidential, one might say, at the state level. The address of this plant is known only botany him botany. The US government has taken care to extend the life of the rarest pine and save it from vandals.

Many tourists go to the mountains and constantly search for a long-lived tree. Everybody dreams to take a picture with him and, maybe, to conceal it, pinch off a piece of bark from memory. But no one has yet succeeded. Does this tree exist with a biblical name - maybe this is another hoax ?!

This is not just a tree - a symbol of eternity, a symbol of life despite death. Visually, it looks deadly, but nevertheless lives — in every cell of it there is real life.

Loneliness as the only way of life

Another super strange plant listed in the International Red Book is the Tree of Life. It grows in the desert in Kenya. And this is the only plant in the vast desert of Bahrain.

Super plant from the Red Book

There are endless sands around the Tree of Life, and any other signs of life appear only a hundred kilometers away. But the main phenomenon of this plant is not in rarity and not at a rather impressive age (400 years), but in the fact that it exists in general.

The life of this amazing creation is still an unsolved mystery for scientists. In the land from which it grows, there is absolutely no water ...
