For the first time this year I got to see some Indian Pipe Flowers (aka ghost flower, corpse plant), scientific name, Monotropa uniflora.
The plants are small, growing to 4-10" tall with flowers that are about ¾" long. The entire plant is white and turns black when damaged. A gel-like sap is said to have been used medicinally by Native Americans for treating eye problems.
Once pollinated, the flowers turn upright and the plants turn brown. Hopefully next time I see them they will be fresher.
