Snow plant (Sarcodes sanguinea) means "the bloody flesh-like thing." They are known as snow plants because they can be seen right after the snow melts in the mountains. Snow plants do not have chlorophyll. They obtain nutrition from fungi located underneath the soil. These were seen in Redwood Canyon, Kings Canyon National Park, in California. Spider webs can be seen on the left side. They are one of my favorite plants because no other plant, that I have seen, looks like it.
