Taxonomy extra:
Flowering plants. These are half-parasites, ie. they only flower if their roots find a host. The seeds look rather a lot like ant pupae, and when they drop ants carry them off. This particular species is the prettiest of the lot. Mustila arboretum, Elimäki, Finland. Planted. 2000-07-03.
