BEAUTY WEDNESDAY | VOYA PEARLESQUE Deep in the Chihuahua Desert, Mexico, lies the most fascinating plant, Selaginella Lepidophylla,The Rose of Jericho. As the rainy season ends and the land dries up, the Rose of Jericho drops its leaves and curls its branches within to begin itsincredible journey. Holding tightly onto its ripe fruits and seeds, the resurrection plant enters adormant state. A variety of tumbleweed, The Rose of Jericho can stay this way for many decades as it is carried across the desert sands by strong winds, rolling for years until it reaches a fresh source of water.
