7 Galápagos Carpetweed at Sullivan Bay on Santiago Island in Galápagos, EC

Nature is incredible! The thick, black lava field at Sullivan Bay seems hostile to plant life. Yet 100 years after the last eruption, flora endemic to the Galápagos has found a way to germinate. Look closely and you will see sparse patches of Galápagos carpetweed. This small herb has tiny white flowers during the wet season. When conditions are dry, it turns orange or red and brittle.
