I noticed these popping out of the ground this weekend, hadnt seen another, grabbed it to get a feel of texture and it felt as if it were tubular with nothing but air in its center, very fragile was my impression.

I do not know if the plant has a flower that has maybe already flowered and is now past its life cycle. Its growing in sugar sand. Thanks

Jason, it looks very similar to a plant I asked about here recently, except mine were red (discussion and pictures here). The conclusion was as Phil suggested, some sort of stinkhorn fungus. Maybe do an image search and see what compares best. It must be their year!

Thank you, Im not sure what you mean by image search but I clicked on the link and they look the same as the pictures in the other topic. No smell here either and wood chips does make sense.

So Im guessing I dont want to eat them? Thanks again

Good question. Go to your favorite search engine and type in (for example) "stinkhorn." There should be some tabs or links across the top of that page, and one of them is "images." That should give you a lot of photos to compare yours to.

So Im guessing I dont want to eat them?


I agree!

Ok yes I do this often. I thought you were possibly suggesting taking a pict of it with phone connected to some app that would identify the plant.

Ive tried this in the past with mixed results so I was immediately turned off cause I couldn't rely on the results.
