Spring Coral Root

Corallorhiza wisteriana

Description:

Terrestrial orchid with no leaves. The flowers had yellow-green to brownish petals and a white lip with purple spots. They were between 5-9 inches in height, maybe some a bit taller. I'd guess the flowers were 1-2 cm long. They have a symbiotic relationship with fungi for their nutrients rather than using photosynthesis like most plants.

Habitat:

Under some young Sabal Palmetto and hardwood trees right next to the walking trail in Homosassa Wildlife Management Area. The path had lots of limestone
