When you say threatened flowers, it means that these are the flowers which are at risk of being gone. We need to be aware of these flowers so that we will be able to know how to conserve them. If they will be gone, we will no longer see their beauty and enjoy the benefits which they provide. Aside from that, the future generation will no longer see them. Of course, we don’t want this to happen right? Here is the list of threatened flowers in Australia:
This is shrub which is common in the island of Norfolk near Philip Island. However, as years pass by, they are killed because of the grazing stock. Accidentally, a rabbit control which is done near the Philip Island has helped for the plants to survive. The entire place should be away from the rabbit and the people so that there will be enough space for the plants to grow.
It is also called as the thorntree. The Acacia is used as the food of larvae of moths. It has different uses like for food, for gum, folk medicine, ornamental uses, paint, perfume, wood, and Tannin.
It is also called as Nightcap Oak. It is a tree which was discovered by a botanist Robert Kooyman. It is endangered on the New South Wales. It can only grow in a poor, volcanic soil where high rainfall can be experienced.
It is a shrub or a small growing tree. It grows in North Eastern New South Wales while others grow in Queensland. The reason why they are endangered is that they live on sand and the seaside are destroyed due to housing improvement. They are difficult to be germinated.
It is also called as Feather-leaved Banksia. It is a shrub that grows in southwest Western Australia. It is very attractive and its leaves are feathery. It becomes endangered because a disease which is called Phytophthora cinnamomi dieback has become prevalent in their habitat. Because of that, they are highly valuable for Australia’s horticultural and cut flower industries. They are cultivated to areas where there is no dieback disease.
It is widely known as Pink Fingers Orchid. It grows in Tasmania and Eastern Australia. Although they can survive in any types of weather, the soil must be free draining and they depend so much on the mycorrhizal fungi in the native soil.
