The skeleton flower is a white flower that grows in the woods. When it gets wet, its petals become very clear. The scientific name for the clear flower is Diphylleia grayi, and it only grows in three places on Earth. The plant grows on damp, wooded mountain slopes in colder parts of Japan, China, and the Appalachian Mountains in the U.S.
It is easy to spot because the rare flowers have large leaves that look like umbrellas. When the petals get wet, the color fades because the cells are not as tight as they should be. This is not because the pigment is being washed away. When it rains, water fills the petals’ cells, making them clear, just like water. It’s not clear, though, whether this makes these small flowers better or worse. When the leaves get dry, they turn white again.
