Many people think of Russia as a cold and snowy country with not many flora species, but that’s certainly not true. In Russia, there are many rare and beautiful flowers, and today we’re going to tell you all about them.
Before we begin, we want to lay out some facts about Russia’s flora species and their current endangerment. According to Russia’s Red Data Book, which is something that documents rare and endangered plants and animals, there are more than five hundred kinds of flowers which are coming to an end if nothing gets done about it.
Luckily, there are many people who protect these species and care about the flora in Russia, so hopefully, the problem will be solved quickly, and extinction will be completely prevented. In Russia, there are more than 350 natural parks and reserves, in which these plants are being protected, so there’s nothing to worry about.
Now, let’s take a look at some of the most popular flowers in Russia.
