Woodland pinedrops (Pterospora andromedea)

Woodland pinedrops (Pterospora andromedea) is a unique California-native plant, which can be found in red fir and yellow pine high-elevation forests. A close relative of snow plant, pinedrops also lacks chlorophyll (hence, the absence of green) and relies upon subterranean fungi for nutrients.
