Product Description

Lomatia tasmanica is an incredible plant, critically endangered, surviving in one location in Southwest 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 (with 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.

“The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens (RTBG) are successfully propagating Lomatia tasmanica to ensure its survival. I am grateful to the propagating curators at the RTBG for their kind access.” Deborah Wace
