Posidonia

Pando, however, does not match the size or age of Posidonia, a flowering grass that proliferates in the Mediterranean and off the coast of Australia. Like quaking aspen, Posidonia oceanica grows in clonal colonies.

One such colony, discovered in the Mediterranean in 2006, is nearly five miles across and thought to be more than 100,000 years old.
