ID woodland plant with all-white stem, purplish tubular flower

Hi, I came across this plant at Cascade River State Park last September and am wondering whaat its identity is. I'll attach a couple of photos so you can see the flower and its growth pattern. I've tried to identify it on plant identity websites, but possibly am not describing it within the search engine well enough. (I suspect it's a type of fungus given its stark white stem, but that's still a plant, right?)

Thank you very much.

Seascape Strawberry Leaf Disease

I am trying to identify this leaf disease on my first-year strawberries. They are Seascape day neutral strawberries. They are planted in a new raised bed with 3 inches of pine straw mulch. They have 15 inch spacing and lots of sun. I do not water overhead. The disease starts as irregular rusty colored scabby patches underneath the leaf and progresses to a reddish bronze discoloration or rash on the top of the leaf. The plants are otherwise vigorous. Is this a fungal disease that can be treated? Or a bacterial or viral infection? How should I treat this please?

Time to plant asiatic and oriental lilies?

I'm in Grand Marais, and we will probably have some below-freezing temps for another month. Can I plant my lily bulbs now, since the ground is workable, or do I have to wait until June?

Pruning perennial hydrengea

Attached are photos of two hydrangea we would like to prune so as to be more of a hedge than a small tree. When is the right time to prune; what pruning is suggested to achieve more closely spaced branching to accomplish more of a hedge appearance?

Do you know the name of this plant? photo taken September 2013 on a North Shore trail near Schroeder, Minnesota. (I am going thru folders of pictures and putting a name on photos to help me learn and know them - this one has me stumped!)
