I read this book a couple of years back. Only now I can't remember what the tile of it was or who the author was. It looked kind of old and had a picture of plants, with lots of blue and green, on the cover. The main character was female and was sent to examine this colony planet which a lot of old people kept asking to be transferred to. The planet had an abundance of weird plant life, including a red plant that ate you when you laid down on it (but it felt really good while it was eating you). The old people asked to be transferred there so that they could die on the planet. I believe that there was also something about a sentient or semi sentient life form later in the book. If anyone knows the author or title of the book, or even has an idea, I'd really appreciate some help.
