Fleischmann's parsnip (Pastinaca sativa var. fleischmanni) is a Slovenian endemic species extinct in the wild. It was named in honour of Andrej Fleischmann (1804-1867), a gardener at Ljubljana Botanic Garden, by his boss, Franc Hladnik. It is the Garden's most valued treasure. Throughout botanical literature, the Ljubljana Botanic Garden is considered to be its only remaining habitat. Fleischmann's parsnip is a biennial. During the first year, it forms only a rosette of bipinnate leaves growing from a long and thick root. During the second year, an up to 100-centimetre stem, grooved and covered with short stiff hairs, grows from the rosette. Its large umbels consist of a multitude of small yellow flowers.
