Rose Pogonia

Pogonia ophioglossoides


Pogonia ophioglossoides, commonly called Rose Pogonia, is found across central and eastern Canada and the United States, from Texas to Newfoundland. It produces one leaf mid-way up its stem, and has one (rarely two or three) pink or rarely white flowers. The edges of the labellum are lacerate; along the center of the labellum, there are several rows of dark pink, purple, or yellow hairs, giving the flower a bearded look. It can be distinguished from other species with similar flowers, such as Calopogon tuberosus or Arethusa bulbosa, by its bearded labellum. It is typically found in boggy habitats, including moist prairies, meadows, and woodlands, swamps, and along riverbanks and roadsides.
