In: Biology

Most of what you see were created by people through genetics whether naturally mixed or in a lab. Wild roses and tulips are prolific where they are native, but they aren’t that interesting to look at. Forests on the east coast of the USA are largely deciduous, but on the west largely evergreen. Both grow in both places, but historically they naturalized where they are. You likely don’t live where roses and tulips are naturalized and native species, and even if you did, they look nothing like what you buy at the store.
