Rare Plant registers have been produced as part of a national Botanical Society of the Britain and Ireland (BSBI) initiative to highlight plants whose scarcity is a cause for concern. The Registers concentrate, and provide information on those species which are rare, on either the national or the local scale or both. In doing so, it draws attention to many species which need to be the subject of conservation action, whether directed at the species themselves or at the habitats they occupy, if they are to survive and flourish in the county.
County Armagh now has it’s own rare plant register with quite a few plants found in the Ring of Gullion area. Check out this list of the type of rare plants which can be found in the Ring of Gullion and their locations.
