|Manhart in spring|
The manhart is a shrub that can thrive in a semi-aquatic environment. It avoids the drowning of its base thanks to a clever system of “root-stilts” that allows the plant to live as if on pilings.
Furthermore it has adopted viviparicity to spread: seeds, rather than risk being drowned or suffocated, germinate on the shrub and it is these young seedlings that detach from the mother tree to plant themselves directly in the ground.
Manhart roots contain a brown substance that serves as a protective coating varnish for Tryker constructions.
