Some of these mutations stretch the imagination... and belief in some intelligence behind these changes is not unreasonable. Lamarck had some ideas about this that I find interesting. Heck, so do the pagans.

No! The evolutionists maintain evolution just 'happens' because they don't recognize an intelligence in Nature, how could they and remain honest?

I interviewed a priest who often deal with Indigo people (he's also an indigo), and he said that the consciousness that those indigo talk with is not the same as the spirit that often resides at trees as the tropical people believe.

It would greatly depend on your definition of intelligence. A lot of people THINK plants are not self aware, and therefore not intelligent beings. Basically, they assume they, as humans, are intelligent, thinking beings. What if they are not? What if every thought is the collective result of all external stimuli(ie, thoughts are implanted by the entirety of all things)?
What if it's our instincts that dominate the thought process? Could it really be considered thinking or intelligent at all?
Everything is wise beyond it's apparent measure. As we, and plants, at the most infinitesimal levels are made up of swirling atoms that give the illusion of solidarity, we are actually made up of EXACTLY the same stuff.
The only difference between things are the terms, connotations, and perceptions. Other than that, this is just all an illusive light show, showcasing the same thing in myriad forms(and if it's the same stuff in infinite forms, it is formless). What do I see no matter where I look? Objects that know everything they need to be.

Plant intelligence, surly the plant must "think" and comunicate to its self along the lines of evolution to do these things. Or is it just natures purely harmonic ways, and nothing really to do with the plant?
