Myrothamnus flabellifolia is a small bush indigenous to southern Africa. It grows on bare rock and reaches a height of up to 60 cm. Myrothamnus survives the drought periods, which last several months, in a completely desiccated state. When the first rains come the plant turns green again within hours. Because of this astonishing capability, it is also called the «resurrection bush».
