Rose of Jericho - Pallenis hierochuntica
Rose of Jericho will constitute a remarkable decoration in every home. This desert flower of Lesser Asia and North Africa dries off during drought periods and takes on spherical, inconspicuous form. It bursts to life and blooms instantly during wetter periods. This is a mythical plant that appears in many legends. One of them claims that Virgin Mary fleeing from Nazareth to Egypt travelled through the hills of the Jericho. Even though it was not the wet season, dry rose bundles started to bloom and turned green in her presence. Mother of god blessed them with a sign of cross, granting them eternal life and healing powers.
A container with a dab of water is enough to evoke a magical change in the plant. It transforms from a dry ball of firt into an eye-catching, remarkable ornament.
