Squaw Root

"A few days ago the conservation club spent some time enjoying the weather and observing nature. We were lucky to find many squaw root plants (Conophilis Americana) growing in the forest. Below you will see the flowers of this plant, which is a parasite that lives off the roots of trees, such as beeches. We also found a beech tree that had fallen over in a storm, exposing the root system." ~Gary Lyon (photos: G Lyon)
