I saw this plant while on a hike yesterday. I'm curious if anyone knows what it is or if you've seen one like it? The whole plant is white. Check it out.

Dunno, but it's pretty cool.

I found some of those in small old growth forest outside of Newberg. I was in highschool at the time and took them into horticulture class and the teacher had no idea what they were. Strangest plant I've ever seen!

I'm pretty sure it's because of the shape of the flower but apparently it is a sedative.
