Yet another week of not-spring has gone by…but I’m feeling optimistic. Looking very forward to sunshine-filled summer hiking trips and a possible sighting of this fascinating Alberta wildflower, striped coralroot (Corallorhiza striata). To find out why this plant isn’t green, check out a previous post I did about coralroots way back in 2013.
Enjoy your weekend! What projects are you working on (gardening or otherwise)?
Amazing plant.Is this an orchid?
Yes, it is. It’s always a treat to find them when out walking. 🙂
How fascinating, Sheryl. Thanks for the link I’d have had no idea what this plant was never mind the extraordinary colour.
Thanks this is realy a beauty
The plant world always amazes me! I love coming across specimens like this. 🙂
This is such a beauty! I would love to be able to see one for real!
I’m always thrilled to find a little clump of them! They’re so delicate-looking and I love that amazing colour.
Definitely a unique beauty!
How beautiful, and the photograph is excellent as well
Thanks so much – they’re really lovely little things.
