I live on an arid island and it's summer - meaning that most every plant that isn't irrigated or a succulent is dead or dying.
However, I walked through a disused quarry today and amid all the desert there was a magnificent, huge bush brimming with life!
It is extremely unlikely that someone is watering it, and it's located on a hillside so there doesn't seem to be any natural irrigation (other than the morning dew).
I would like to propagate this plant and grow it where I live. We are at risk of flash floods and urgently need to stabilize the soil around the property. This bush looks like it could help.
Can anyone help me tell what kind it is - and in a next step perhaps, how to propagate it? (Although I might be able to find that out on the Internet as soon as I know the genus.)
It seems to all be coming from one stem, if that helps. It's not like a fig that grows loads of saplings underneath if you let it.
