The bending bulbern replaced their ancestor and spread throughout northern Mason. Like their ancestor, they grow in such a way that the leaves are facing the east/west, to take advantage of the long sunrise and sunset of the Mason year. They have evolved a flexible tissue column that runs through their center, giving them extra support. This allows them to twist and bend in the wind, preventing them from being broken. They are also twice the size of their ancestor, but is mostly the same.
