Ephedra minima
Product Details
A really strange looking evergreen perennial form China and tibet. Foliage is reduced to a simple pair of scales which clasp the greenish-grey stems at intervals of around 2 cms. The stems resemble those of Horsetail but in fact it stays quite compact, spreading underground by stolons and making a thicket of stems. Flowers are small and yellowish followed by the more attractive red fruits.
