  1. squaw root

    Squaw root, also known as Conopholis Americana, is a herbaceous perennial plant native to North America. It is characterized by its parasitic nature, as it derives nutrients from the roots of oak trees and beech trees. Squaw root does not perform photosynthesis, instead producing yellowish, cone-like structures in lieu of conventional leaves and flowers. It has been traditionally used by indigenous peoples for various medicinal purposes. It is also sometimes known as bear corn due to its resemblance to corn on the cob.
