Hooded Ladies'-tresses

Hooded Ladies'-tresses
Hooded Ladies'-tresses, Spiranthes romanzoffiana, is a very common summer blooming orchid here in the west. We have three species of Spiranthes in Washington, but two of them are very rare, the opposite of this. It usually grows in damp meadows and often at high altitudes, but we found these near Pen d'Orielle in eastern Washington at the top of a hill at under 2000 feet elevation. They are the last of our native orchids to bloom, though there may be a few other species still blooming at the highest elevations. These were photographed early in the morning when the dew was still on them.
