Corallorhiza mertensiana fma. pallida

Corallorhiza mertensiana fma. pallida
Here's another color form of the plant I last posted, a pale pink stem instead of yellow and brownish flowers with heavier purple markings on the lip. It is fun finding these every year and seeing what new color forms we can find. They are leafless and without chlorophyll and so the one color that cannot be found is green. As noted before, these are only stems with flowers, so there are no leaves either. The are 12-18 inches tall and grow on forest floors where there is often little or no light, which also makes photography difficult.

Fascinating, Ron. Are the colours on these random, or do the different colour variations arise because of different fungi in the soil?

Ron Hanko has replied to tiabunna
The colors are entirely random and have nothing to do with the soil. Where these were photographed there are hundreds of different color forms and they are often growing side by side.
