Azorella - A 3000 Years Old Plant

Azorella is a genus of about 70 species of flowering plants in the family Araliaceae, native of South America, New Zealand and the islands of the Southern Ocean. The genus is sometimes placed in family Apiaceae. They are low-growing dwarf mat-forming plants growing in high exposure on mountains and subantarctic coasts; with great age they may form rounded mounds of foliage up to one m high but are usually less than one dm high. Several species are grown as ornamental plants in rock gardens. The beautiful, cold Andean landscapes are embellished by Yareta (Azorella compacta), a steep green pillow-like carpet, which grows only one millimeter a year and is in danger of extinction.
