Almost a fifth of the country is forested, however only 10 percent is natural forest2 Hungary is home to some 2,200 flowering plant species and, because of its topography and transitional climate, many of them are not normally found at this latitude Much of the flora in the Villány and Mecsek Hills in Southern Transdanubia, for example, is usually seen only around the Mediterranean Sea2 On the southern Szársomlyó Hill of the Villány Mountains, the formerly unknown Colchicum hungaricum Hungarian Crocus was found and botanically described in 1867 by the Hungarian botanist Viktor Janka This is the earliest native Hungarian flower to bloom
The salty Hortobágy region on the Eastern Plain has many plants normally found on the seashore, and the Nyírség area is famous for meadow flowers The Gemenc forest on the Danube River near Szekszárd, the Little Balaton in the center of Transdanubia, and the Tisza River backwater east of Kecskemét are important wetlands2 Most of the trees in the nation's forests are deciduous beech, oak, and birch, and a small percentage are fir Since the 14th century, over 250 new plants have colonized Hungary, of which almost 70 are considered invasive2 Many such plants are perennial herbs that have slowly extirpated some native flora2

Historically, Hungary was the second largest supplier of paprika to the United States,3 despite the spice not being a product of a Hungarian native plant Hungarian paprika has a distinctive flavor and is in great demand in Europe where it is used as a spice rather than as a coloring agent3
