These are the strangest flowers I've come across in my hiking this spring (I guess I'd also have to include the lady's slipper). The first is a dutchman's pipe. The small pipe-shaped flower (1 inch long) grows on a vine with heart-shaped leaves that are a foot wide. The vine can grow up to 60 feet high!
The jack-in-the-pulpit flower is another unique plant. It is pollinated by attracting mosquitoes and other insects into it's base with its stagnant smell. Note that some have purple or brown stripes.
