The specimen Anaphalis javanica or better known as Javanese Edelweiss is an endemic plant of Indonesia that has been protected since 1990. You are prohibited from picking this flower if you find it in nature.
This unique flower only grows in the mountains and is becoming rare because it is widely used in traditional ceremonies and souvenirs for travelers. This flower was declared extinct in the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park in 1989.
Now, you can find this rare flower in the Edelweiss park of Wonokitri village. This tourist attraction has received permission from the Ministry of the Environment to legally preserve and sell Javanese Edelweiss flowers.
