Monotropa uniflora

July 24, 2012

I haven’t seen this plant for years and spotted this clump while on a walk a few days ago through Ruckle Provincial Park

Thank you to all that take the time to look at my blog, sadly neglected as it has been lately! I appreciate the comments and support and hope to be back to more regular posts soon!

    That’s interesting! It almost reminds me of a mushroom. I don’t think we have this plant in Norway. We do have some hemi-parasitic plants, living on the roots of shrubs. They are green, but turn black when collected and put into a vase.

      I think these would turn black as well – the green sounds beautiful

    back on SaltSpring? I had a tiny patch of those when we lived on Scott Pt. If you come over to Victoria give me a call.

    Hi, I have this plant in my yard under some cedar trees.

      these were near cedar as well, but I have seen them in various places.

    Welcome back, Evelyn! I know that one as Indian pipe. So weird with its ghostly look somewhere between a flower and a mushroom.
