I photographed this Plant/Fungus? a couple of years ago. It is pink [obviously] with white flowers. It was residing on a sandy/rocky piece of land on the inside bend of a good sized stream. It is about the size of a "Large" pine cone. Any and all info is welcome

You do not indicate upon which continent this plant was observed,if it's South America one can probably smoke it.
