Bacopa Cabana, also known as The Pikmin Flower, is a cultivated species of flower named after the Pikmin series and bred with the intention of using it to market the first game.[1] Nintendo announced the impending creation of the flower through an agreement with S&G Flowers USA in late 2001, and it became commercially available in April the following year, five months after the release of the game. The full press release can be found here. The flower is now quite rare, with the late release of Pikmin 3 causing it to fall out of popularity.
