Here's an interesting plant I came across today. I wasn't sure at first what it was because I didn't think it grew in clumps like this, I thought it grew as singular stalks. It very much reminds me of Indian Pipe, and like Indian Pipe it can grow singularly or, as I found out today, in clumps. But that is not all: Also, very much like my favorite Indian Pipes, it does not use photosynthesis to create food. It gets it's nourishment from the roots of nearby plants. To me, this is sort of a springtime Indian Pipe, I'm sure those more versed in botany would scoff at this assertion, but it's just a casual observation of mine with no scientific backing. (Well, it DOES share the uniflora classification). I introduce the One-flowered Cancer-root (Orobanche uniflora)... June 1, 2019.
