  1. russian tumbleweed

    A Russian tumbleweed, scientifically known as Kali tragus, is a type of plant native to Eurasia. Known also as Russian thistle or windwitch, this plant is notorious for its rapid growth and adaptability to poor soil conditions. It thrives in arid environments and is often linked with scenes of desert or drought. When mature, the plant detaches from its root and driven by the wind, it rolls around (hence the name tumbleweed), dispersing seeds across a vast area. This plant is considered an invasive species in some regions, including the United States, due to its resilience and potential to spread quickly.
