Flower of cow wheat, Mason County, MI, July 2014
Flowers may be white or yellowish. This is a hemi-parsitic plant which is often found growing under red pine or jackpine. It takes nutrition from other plants, but does not require these hosts, therefore it is considered hemi-parasitic. Also called narrow-leaved cow wheat.
