Response to curious
We see them a lot as we hike up the old #17 mtn. bike trail that extends from the Crossovers and up and a few people on Innsbruck have them in their yards--also I've seen them in the woods as I ride my bike out to the spray fields toward the Mill Creek bridge--it is also known as candy stick, barber's pole, and sugar stick (botanical name: Allotropa virgata)--They lack green leaves and feed on decaying vegetation. It is a saprophyte--common west of the Cascades and also on the eastern slope--blooms June to Aug. 'neath ponderosa pine and Doug. fir.
