Flora on PJ2-445 which emit an extremely low level of sound essential to maintaining a species of sound-sensitive aliens that co-exist with them on the planet. The plants appear in clusters on the surface, with brilliant pink blooms -- but underground they are networked together as essentially one giant organism.
