Hi everyone on this Tuesday morning! Here we are with one of my favorite summer wildflowers to find, the “Indian Pipe”. This wildflower produces no chlorophyll and is usually found in pure white, but can also be found in pink as in the picture above. Finding the pink around here is a real joy since I have only seen it in 2 different places, but I have found the white ones in many places. They prefer very shady locations, usually under pine trees, in moist rich soil. They quickly turn black in the dry air. They are a native wildflower and blooms from June to September. They grow from 4 to 10 inches (10 to 25cm) tall and the flowers can be from 1/2 to 1 inch (12mm to 25mm) long. They are definitely a fun and unique wildflower to find. They can be found across Canada and most of the US. Have a wonderful day and God bless!
