Opithandra primuloide / Iwagirisou イワギリソウ

 
If this species once dries up and wither, then it turns into something like a piece of dried gray paper sticking onto the rock. It looks like part of the cliff, and casual observers may not notice. Interestingly, however, it revives with the supply of abundant rainfall. The fact is a real surprise. I have no idea if this is true of the other habitats, however.
