Abutilon pitcairnense (Yellow fatu)

Wikipedia Abstract

Abutilon pitcairnense (Yellow fatu, Yellow fautu) is a critically endangered perennial plant that is native to Pitcairn Island. It was once considered extinct, until a single plant was discovered on the island in 2003. At that time, cuttings and seed were used to propagate several plants at a nursery on the island and botanical gardens in Ireland and England. The last wild surviving plant died in a landslide in 2005, making the plant extinct in the wild.
