Indian Pipe, A Plant With No Chlorophyll, Is Blooming On Cape Cod.

Indian Pipe wildflowers have no chlorophyll so they get their nutrients from decaying matter. They have whitish, waxy scaly stalks with nodding, waxy 1″  bell-shaped flowers. They grow solo or in clumps and only from 4″-10″ tall. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

They bloom from July to September in the woods, so if you’re out on a hike in the woods, maybe you will see one. Just look for the white stalks sticking out of the ground!
