Nature never ceases to amaze. Did you know of a flower that turns from pure white to transparent when it comes into contact with water? And when the leaves dry out, the flower turns back to their original white! Magical isn’t it?
Meet the white woodland blossom, otherwise known as the Skeleton Flower (Scientific name Diphelleia grayi). This flower grows naturally in three regions of the world. The plant grows on moist, wooded mountain sides in colder regions of Japan, China and the Appalachian Mountains in the United States, and is instantly recognizable by its large, umbrella-like leaves.
While the plant is perennial, and can grow up to a height of 0.4 meters, the flowers bloom from mid-spring to early-summer in shady conditions.
