Monotropa uniflora (Indian Pipe) - 'Indian-pipe' refers to the pipe-like flowers. It is also called "Ghost-flower" and "Corpse plant" - names inspired by the unusual colour and texture of the plant. Indian-pipe has been called "Ice plant" because it resembles frozen jelly, and 'melts' when handled.
