Indian Pipe Flower Plants

The Indian Pipe Flower is a strange plant indeed. As it's name implies, this plant produces flowers, that look like a smoking pipe. The pipe-like flower is white.  The flowers bloom from June to September. The plant has tiny, scale-like white leaves, that turn black when the plant gets old.

The plant is a parasite, It does not produce chlorophyll, so, it relies on other plants for the nutrients it needs. It is often mistaken for a fungi. The plants grow in shady woodlands, in moist, rich soils with lots of decaying plant matter.

Other names: It is sometimes called the Corpse Plant (not Corpse Flower)
