Resurrection Plant


The Resurrection Plant, Selaginella lepidophylla, is an interesting plant known for its ability to come back to life again and again even after completely drying out. Also known as the "Rose of Jericho," this plant curls into a tight ball during dry weather in its native habitat, only to unfurl its deep green fronds when exposed to moisture again.

The Resurrection Plant can be found in the USA, Mexico and Central America, growing in dry deserts where it is adapted to survive, even when there is no water available for years at a stretch.
