Only found in Gibraltar, the Campion was once thought to be extinct by the scientific community in 1992 when all traces of the plant vanished.  Then in 1994, a single specimen was discovered by a climber hiking on the high cliffs of Gibraltar.  It was propagated at the Millennium Seed Bank and specimens are now grown at the Almeda Gibraltar Botanic Gardens, as well as at the Royal Botanic Gardens in London.
