I´ve yet to figure what they are.
they only grow in dark places, about 3cm tall.
Neues Leben ! BIG LIKE ! LG RR
Very nice! LIKE!
Indian Pipes FRED
They grow without photosynthesis (did I spell that right?) and their heads are all perky until they get fertilized!
Wonderful little American plants (I think) where did you see them?
We have them on our property in the mountains.
Interesting Jethro because these I found in the German Alps at approx. 3000ft in a dark pine forest floor over Garmisch. FRED
That IS very interesting Fred !
I looked them up on Wikipedia and am sure they are the same.
We see them at 3,000 ft in pine forest in the Appalachian mountains. Yet Wikipedia says nothing about European variety.
Most fascinating stuff - thank you.
Here is another Panoramio picture - Jethro
OK Jethro, I went to the German wikipedia and found the following:
Monotropa hypopitys L. (Fichtenspargel) und
Monotropa uniflora L. (Indian pipe, Ghost plant)
The first is the European form. Our common name translates to "Pine Aspargus". In Germany we like our aspagus grown white.
Well done Fred and thank you. That is the great thing about Panoramio (for me) is the learning and finding folks who can help us all learn!
I just also learned from dropping just Monotropa into wikipedia that there is a Chinese form.
I don't get their relationship to blueberries though!
Best wishes from the USA - Jethro
Mai visti questi piccoli fiori che nascono nel sottobosco. lk Sile
