(Ex: Bamboo)Shrubs and many small flowing plants in the deserts of China spring up rapidly after summer rains. Bamboo and Shrubs   Asia lies wholly in the northern and eastern hemispheres. Together with Europe, Asia is called as Eurasia. Pacific Ocean lies to the east and Indian Ocean to the south of Asia.
