Indian-pipe Monotropa uniflora is a strange-looking colourless plant
which may be found growing in the leaf litter in shaded woods. The waxy
stems each have a nodding flower at the tip so the plants vaguely resemble
tobacco pipes in shape. There are much-reduced scale-like leaves on the
stems. The flowers appear in the summer and the plants blacken with age.
