Item Description:

  1. Botanic view

    The “Rose-of-Jericho” is a desert plant, which grows in the Judean-Desertbelow the Sea-Level. It is green, lives and has flowers for one season of rainy winter. In summer, she, the dead and dry “Mother”, closes over the seed she produced, and keeps them from birds and insects.

    Every time there will be a flood of water later, she will open up, spread her arms, and distribute 1% of the seeds for the next generation to grow.

    She will do this for 20 years.

  2. Christian tradition

    A Christian tradition tells, that when Mary, Mother of Jesus was on escape from Judea to Egypt, she was introduced to this plant, was fascinated of the plant behavior, and blessed the plant. Therefore, a home which possesses a “Rose-of-Jericho” will be blessed.

    It is give often as a present for Christmas, for a new born baby, for Eastern and more.

    Anastatica Hierochuntica – is the only “Rose-of-Jericho” which really grows in the Land of the Bible.


  3. How to treat the item

    You put the dry plant in a bowl of water, so it is fully covered by water, and wait for 4 hours. She will open up.

    You may leave her in water for two days, but then – take her out and let her dry and close again. Do not leave her in water for too many days. It is a desert plant not a water rose.

    Enjoy the plant!

    I grow the Rose of Jericho- in my farm in Israel.

Rose of Jericho

The Rose of Jericho, the Resurrection Plant, grows in the Judean Desert, in the Land of the Bible. Anastatica Hierochuntica is the only Rose of Jericho that truly grows in the holy land and is the only one to have indeed been blessed by Mary, mother of Jesus. The fern Selaginella grows in Mexico. At present the country is home to many women named "Mary", but Jesus' mother most certainly was never there. The Rose of Jericho is a desert plant that found a way of surviving in the desert, similar to the Star of Blessing. Both close up over their seeds in times of drought. The Star of Blessing, like the Rose of Jericho, flowers in the spring, after the sparse desert rains, and in April its flowers begin to dry up. But then, the next winter, following the rains, the Star of Blessing and the Rose of Jericho are saturated by the water and they open to scatter their seeds and to let the next generation of plants begin to grow. Both flowers will open and close for 20 years. Sensing water they will open, and once the rain stops they will close. Mary, mother of Jesus, was awed by the plant that opens in water, and blessed it. Since then, any family that has the Rose of Jericho in its home will be blessed. The Star of Blessing is used for decorative purposes. I attach the Star of Blessing to stones from the desert and to jars of colored sand, and of course to beautiful pendants, and whenever water is poured on one of them – it opens up wide and looks like a star.
