The Tuft Sedge of St Helena

I don't know about you, but I always relish stories like this - and, happily, they're surprisingly common. I love the fact that this plant was last seen in precisely 1806, before Napoleon set foot on the island. 'Extinct' or not, it's been there all along. Let's hope it sticks around.
