First Landing State Park

It's a family tradition to spend Thanksgiving week in a cabin at First Landing State Park. It's also a tradition that we always find at least one Indian pipe (Monotropa uniflora) still lingering along a trail. This year we didn't arrive until the week after Thanksgiving, so I was worried about finding even one Indian pipe. Well, here's the one solitary specimen that I found. It doesn't look like much, but still... Indian pipes are true flowering plants. They're parasitic, generally completely white, but occasionally with a small tinge of color. They look deathly and feel odd. In fact, touching one causes it to "melt." They were Emily Dickinson's favorite flower. She wrote a poem about them. Other than skunk cabbages, they may well be my favorite plant too. Here's a link to more photos and information about this interesting plant: https://briarpatchposts.blogspot.com/2011/09/ghostly-indian-pipe.html ... See MoreSee Less

great article and find! 'Native Americans used the juice of Indian Pipes to produce an eye lotion. They used the roots to brew a tea for treating colds and fevers. Early settlers used Indian Pipes to treat fainting spells and nervous conditions. They considered Indian Pipes to be a good substitute for opium.'
