Botany picture #36: Asarum europaeum
Asarum europaeum (Aristolochiaceae), Germany, 2008. A small creeping plant on the forest floor, with small dull brown flowers hidden between the leaves. As in the case of the orchid featured in the previous botany picture, fungus gnats are tricked into pollinating the flowers.
