The Ghost Flower

Indian-Pipe, ghost flower, corpse plant, ice plant - are all names inspired by this perennial's pale appearance and shape. Unable to make chlorophyll its' nutrition must come from other sources. In this case, via fungi to the roots of a nearby tree.  Maybe vampire plant should be added to its' list of titles?

We found this group of spectre forms rising from the ground near Cascade Falls, Mission this past weekend.

Imagine living here...
