Anyone know what plant this is?

Recommended Posts

I have no idea what it is, but you guys have helped me before. Can you help me identify yet another? Thanks! :) Oh, I guess I should mention that I found it at Little Qualicum Falls, on Vancouver Island.

squaw root? also called conopholis americana, & American cancer-root .

ive seen it out here in the Ohio woods- but apparently they grow everywhere east of the Mississippi .

if that's not exactly what you think it is, check out his site ... http://www.fs.fed.us/wildflowers/interesting/mycotrophic/whatarethey.shtml

I'd bet it's one of those ( mycotrophic, I mean. ) kind of cool....

Wonderful! Thank you lampethree.

 

So the plant is called Allotropa virgata, or it's common name Sugarstick...just what it looks like. Nifty!

 

I knew the forums would once again solve a mystery for me. I LOVE the forums! :)
