The white woodland blossom, also known as the “skeleton flower”, is mythically referred to as the “chameleon of the woods” because of the fact that when it rains its petals turn from being an opaque white to almost transparent.

During this transition, the veins of the flower are exposed and drops of water cling to the veiny structure to create an ethereal, dewy lattice that almost looks like the skeleton of a flower rather than a lush, living specimen.

When saturated, it looks like a spindly ice sculpture.

But once it stops raining, the skeleton flower reverts back to its original state.

Say hello to the Skeleton Flower, a white woodland blossom whose petals turn crystal clear when they make contact with water.

Diphelleia grayi, the scientific name of the Skeleton Flower, can be found in only three parts of the world.

The plant grows on moist, wooded mountainsides in colder regions of Japan, China and the Appalachian Mountains in the United States, and is instantly recognizable by its large, umbrella-like leaves.

Oh, and when the the leaves dry out, they turn back to being white.
