This month’s mystery plant
is a small perennial plant
with white flowers and
a glabrous stem. 
It has alternate, entire leaves
and it is a root parasite. 
It grows from 5 to 15” tall. 
It is often found in large colonies
in fields or sometimes on ledges.
The flowers are composed
of 4 to 5 white sepals sometimes
referred to as “tepals”. 
The fruit is an oddly- shaped drupe
with a short neck at the top. 
This plant blooms from
late May through early July.
