Resurrection plants

Photo from Peggy Wenrick
There are two species of this spike moss (genus Selaginella) in Sabino Canyon; the bright green one is more common, the whitish one generally grows taller. This photo was taken on the Bluff trail. Well adapted to the desert, just a bit of moisture makes them lush and vibrant. Take a walk and seek them out.
