Red Book Rendezvous

Convolvulus argyrothamnos

Red List Category: Critically Endangered.
Major Threats : The extremely small number of individuals at the site near Ierápetra puts this species at a very high risk of extinction. The final blow may be a bush fire, rare plant collectors, or the great difficulty these plants have reproducing from seed.
Conservation Actions: Internationally, C. argyrothamnos is included in two legal documents: Bern Convention and EU Habitats Directive. The plant is also included in Natura 2000 site. Two plants, propagated by cuttings, are currently being cultivated at the Technological Education Institute of Heraklion (Crete). Although they flower, they do not produce fruit. A programme of seed collection and storage at the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania (Crete) has also been launched.
