I would say there is a large number of endemic plants which are very ornamental. It includes a large variety of bulbs (hundreds of them), ferns, ornamental alpine rock plant, flowering bushes / trees, palms, succulents, cacti and all. Those who have been to Deosai/Northern Areas in Aug or to Cholistan / Thar in Mar/Apr or to the rugged mountain of Balochistan in Apr/May would know what I am talking about. The most beautiful Iris that I ever saw grew near an isoalted lake over 10000 feet which took me 5 hours to climb from the road. It was just growning there, in hundreds. One would find numerous species of tulips, crocus, hycinths, fretillerias, campanulas, oxalis, primulas, gladiolus, narcissus, jonquils, alliums, bauhinias, saxifragas, echiverias what and what not. Many bulbs that we cherish so much nowadays...... their grandparents were taken from our mountaineous areas a long time back.farhan137 wrote:Third consideration is that most plants people are interested in, are non-endemic, rather naturalized.. Most endemic plants, are of no ornamental value to hobbyist/Gardeners. Moreover it requires great command over the subject to be able to differentiate/classify naturalized from endemic.
