Over the last decade, botanists have noticed a dramatic reduction in the occurrence of the flower, even in areas where they typically thrive. The dwindling numbers of the flower are thought to be caused by Global Warming, as wetlands and marshes undergo dramatic chemical changes when exposed to excessive heat or rain. Conservation efforts have been created to not only preserve the numbers of the species but to study further why it seems to be a flowering plant in retreat.
