Clone Archive

New garden cultivars are constantly being developed and old ones disappear. In order to preserve older cultivars for the future, the Swedish Programme for Diversity of Cultivated PLants (POM) started in 2002, and the National Gene Bank in Alnarp opened in 2016. In Alnarp, older cultivars grow in large fields.

As a back up to the living plant collections, there are local clone archives all around Sweden. One of them is situated here in the Botanical Garden of Lund University. Here, ornamental perennials from Skåne are grown.
