Western Coralroot

Corallorhiza maculata ssp. mertensiana


Pink saprophyte sprouts not yet blooming. Inflorescence resulted in orchid blooms! The first flower (of many to come) was observed on July 2, 2012.


Old growth coniferous forests. Found growing around a lot of western hemlocks and Pacific silver firs.


The picture on the far right shows the mountainous wooded area where it was spotted. Further research reveals a variety of these orchids.
