Photo 10 May 46 notes oldlaur:

Striped coralroot (Corallorhiza striata) from an aspen oak forest in the Interlake region of Manitoba. These attractive orchids don’t produce chlorophyll and are therefore unable to make their own food (the lack of chlorophyll is why the stem is pink, not green). Coralroots derive their nutrition from fungi and organic materials in the soil.
