Striped Coralroot

Dave Ostrom
I took this photo on May 24th at Idler's Rest Nature Preserve. It is a Striped Coralroot and as it has no Chlorophyll in its leaves it derives its nourishment from fungi. The plant goes dormant for several years after blooming so one can go back the next year to the same spot to see it again.
