White Bog-Orchid
Plantanthera dilatata

One thing I noticed about this particular plant was that the lower center petal was open in some cases and closed in others. I wonder if it has something to do with whether or not the flower has been pollinated.

Location: Sealion Cove, Kruzof Island, Southeast Alaska

Previous: Yellow Rattle (Rhinanthus minor)
Next: Baneberry (Actaea rubra)
