Dollar Bush

Plants of Namibia

The dollar bush (Zygophyllum stapffii) is one of the Namib Desert's endemic species with a range that extends from the central Namib north into southern Angola. It is a leaf succulent and this desert shrub has a low growth feature. The round leaves, which some say resemble coins particularly when dried (hence the name), are its main unmistakable feature.

(Zygophyllum stapffii) are mostly found on gravel plains, drainage lines and at times sandy areas. There are around 30 recorded species of the dollar bush and most of the other shrubby members of the family occur in the southern Namib and in central Namibia.
