Flora


Recommended Posts

One of the coolest wildflowers I've run across. Know as Corpse Plant, Ghost Pipe & Indian Pipe. It has no Chlorophyll which accounts for the pale coloration. It obtains it's nutrients by forming a symbiotic with fungus growing in the root system of certain trees. The fungus obtains nutrients from the tree's root system & then the flowers get nutrients from the fungus. Kind of a three way partnership!

What I've shared so far are only the ones I have identified [or hope that I have]. I still have a bunch that I'm trying to ID. 🙂

I’m in the same boat. Although I have a much smaller set of photos. Mostly penstemon and paintbrushes.

Two unknowns???

1. Some kind of nightshade, probably Bittersweet Nightshade, a common weed in much of non-arid North America.

2. Maybe a toadflax, Linaria.

Also, I think your tiger lily might be a daylily, since it doesn't have dark spots.

Thanks!! Won't let me edit here but changed them on my Flickr page.
