Ground Cone
Boschniakia rossica

This unusual plant is related to the Squawroot that we have here in the eastern forests. Squawroot is parasitic on oak tree roots, Ground Cone is parasitic on Mountain Alder roots. I found it climbing up the Skyline Trail on my quest for the Chocolate Lily. These plants were the only ones I saw during our 2 week trip.
