Lomatia tasmanica is an incredible plant, critically endangered, surviving in one location in SW Tasmania. This plant has sterile flowers and regenerates by root suckering and coppice alone, due to its inability to produce seeds. The species is triploid (three sets of chromosomes) which is rare in nature. Lomatia tasmanica has become, over thousands of years, one large clonal colony, and may be one of the oldest plants on earth. It remains critically vulnerable to fire and root rot pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi.

You can find an interesting fact sheet on their website: www.dpipwe.tas.gov.au/Documents/Lomatia-tasmanica.pdf ” – Deborah Wace
