We live in southeast michigan. Yesterday we found some long thin white fungus that look like roses on top. They appear very delicate and are very pretty. Does any one know what they are?

I discovered it is not a fungus, it is a wildflower called ghost flower or dutchmens pipe.

I see those little white plants all over the place in my woods. I thought they were a type of fungus also when I first saw them some years ago.. It's a common mustake. They share the same sort of habitat - moist and shady places.

cool find! around these parts its a good sign of a healthy forest.

dutchmens pipe usually refers to a VERY pretty vine that has large purple flowers....somewhat shaped like a pipe i suppose? Aristolochia tomentosa.

not sure where they are native but i have seen tehm growing here in gardens on southern vancouver island. fairly hardy.


anyway i also find teh reddy ones somtimes. teh ones here are called canysticks or somthing. red and white stripes. they are a very good sign as tehy only appear in older more healthy ecosystems....good places to find chants i find.

Cool plants! I've never seen them before. Maybe you could get a better pic next time

Anyway, have you seen "Princess Mononoke"? I ask this because those plants reminded me some characters that appeard in this movie. They are called "The Kodama" and they are also a sign that the forest is healthy
