Stone Loving Plant


This very tiny plant was growing on the bare stone in many places on the pyramids. The rocks were hot and dry and without any evidence of soil. The leaves are about 5 mm in width and the tiny red flowers are only 1 mm. The plant in the first two pictures seemed to be more severely drought affected, whereas the third picture shows a more healthy individual. All were flowering.
