Selaginella lepidophylla From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Selaginella lepidophylla (syn. Lycopodium lepidophyllum; Resurrection Plant, Dinosaur Plant, Rose of Jericho, Siempre Viva, Stone Flower, Doradilla) is a desert plant in the spikemoss family. S. lepidophylla is noted for its ability to survive almost complete desiccation; during dry weather in its native habitat, its stems curl into a tight ball and uncurl when exposed to moisture (Lebkuecher 1993). It is native to the Chihuahuan Desert.
