    Indian ghost pipe is one of the only plants that doesn't use photosynthesis (hence, is white with no chlorophyll) for nutrients, but instead decaying matter. Its so neat.

    Also, these. Hepaticas are one of the first flowers to bloom here in spring. They're tiny and grow in clusters of purple or white all over the woods.

    The rather unfortunately named Golden Shower Tree Cassia fistula



    And these flowers, I dunno what they're called in English, but they have the most wonderful perfume.



    And cannas

    Wisteria is one of my favorite parts of springtime. It's an invasive species here and can really take over, but the smell is beautiful.



    Also, does anyone know the name of the plant in the two photos below? I took these at a friend's apartment in Tucson, Arizona, and have never seen plants like them anywhere else. The leaves look like mimosa leaves, but I've never seen a mimosa with this kind of flower.

    Could be a Royal Poinciana. It's still a baby one though, they grow much, much taller.

    Yup, one of my favourites as well. I had one outside our house growing up.

    Monotropa uniflora is NOT a saprophyte, like all its relatives it is a parasite that feeds on a mycorrhizal fungi.
