Echeveria subrigida flower on Flickr.

Native to Mexico

Echeveria subrigida (Saxifragales - Crassulaceae) is one of the largest species in the gesus Echeveria. It forms 9 inch tall by 18 inch wide rosettes of wide spade-shape blue-green leaves that are deeply channeled and that have smooth margins that often are highlighted with pink or rose tones. In late spring into mid-summer appear the heavy upright stalks bearing coral-pink flowers that are orange inside with red nectaries [source].

Snowdrops
Galanthus nivalis
Common Snowdrops are the first harbinger of spring in many parts of the temperate Northern hemisphere. In Danish, they are called “Wintergækker,” which means “winter-teaser.” Galanthus nivalis is native to, and naturalised in large swathes of Europe, and thought to have been dispersed by the Romans during conquest.
Other members of the Galanthus family are endangered in the wild, and collection is prohibited.
Snowdrop Gardens are popular tourist destinations, marking the opening of a number of botanical gardens, especially in the UK.
There is even a term for a devoted lover of snowdrops: a “Galanthophile.”
I have snowdrop bulbs available from my garden, if you would like to grow them yourself.

Monotropa uniflora
"Also known as the ghost plant, Indian pipe, or corpse plant. 
Unlike most plants, it is white and does not contain chlorophyll. Instead of generating energy from sunlight, it is parasitic, more specifically a myco-heterotroph. Its hosts are certain fungi that are mycorrhizal with trees, meaning it ultimately gets its energy from photosynthetic trees. Since it is not dependent on sunlight to grow, it can grow in very dark environments as in the understory of dense forest. It is often associated with beech trees. 
The complex relationship that allows this plant to grow also makes propagation difficult.
The plant is sometimes completely white but commonly has black flecks and a pale pink coloration. Rare variants may have a deep red color.”
