Found 9 flowering plants yesterday. Only 3 had fresh flowers though. There were plenty of immature plants around too. Any one know what species and how rare these are? My mom told me they were everywhere when she was young.
one next to the path. (easy to photograph)
adult with a dried up flower.
Immature one I thought might be a lady slipper last year, got bigger and has the same type and number of leaves as adults.
Adult buried in a thick patch of saplings. Had my favorite coloration.
