Hladnikia pastinacifolia

Hladnikia (Hladnikia pastinacifolia) is a so called paleoendemic, an endemic species living in Slovenia mainly as a relict of Tertiary flora (the plants that existed in the Tertiary period, an early division of the Cenozoic Era). Hladnikia is Slovenia's only generic endemic. It belongs to the umbel family, which includes several well known edible plants such as carrots, parsley, lovage and celery. The colour and shine of hladnikia's lustrous leaves are slightly reminiscent of celery, but hladnikia is far more delicate, its leaf stems being shorter and foliage thicker. It grows naturally in a very limited area of the Trnovski gozd plateau. Its name was coined by the German botanist Ludwig Reichenbach in honour of Franc Hladnik, the founder of the Ljubljana Botanic Garden.
