The purpplage split from the purple poison shrub. This plant became very adapted to the rocky environment and developed a trunk nearest to the ground and very long roots to facilitate its sustentation. Its twigs and leaves are more flexible now and allow it to protect its flowers and fruits from a storm or from strong winds by closing itself. It kept its characteristic of toxicity, producing larger and more acidic fruits. When these fruits are mature, they free themselves from the purpplage and, when landing in the ground, the acid is set free, dissolving some rocks on surface, and helps to create a cove where the new plant will be able to grow.
