There are more than 270,000 species of flowers in existence and an even bigger number of subspecies. While most flowers are indeed pretty, there are flowers out there who aren’t necessarily known for their looks nor for their smell. Some flowers require specific climatic conditions to bloom, conditions that when not met, will force these particular flowers to either not bloom that that year or to die altogether. Such is the case with the flowers we will soon talk about, flowers that because of their sensibilities, have almost gone extinct. Let us then find out what are the ten rarest flowers in the world and where can they be found.
Found mainly on the high peaks of Gibraltar, this rare flower was believed to be extinct until a few specimens were found in the late 1980s. Unfortunately, the flower did get extinct eventually, as nobody has seen the flower in its natural habitat ever since. This being said, seeds of this exquisite flower are still kept at the Almeda Gibraltar Botanic Gardens and the Royal Botanic Gardens in London.
