Indian Pipes (Monotropa uniflora) can be found at the BioReserve. According to the Peterson Field Guide to Wildflowers, this plant occurs in shady woods and stands 10-24 cm tall. The nodding flower is white or pink and later turns blackish, while the leaves are scale-like. Indian Pipes feed on decaying material in the soil, and are considered parasitic or saprophytic with no photosynthesis. Photo by Mr. Whitney Stocker.
