An Orchid in the Yard

    While I strive to encourage wild flowers in my lawn, I was surprised to see that this orchid had come up in the front yard.  It is called a Striped Coralroot ( Corallorhiza striata).  I have seen the plant before growing in the bush, but this is the first time I have found it in my front yard.  
    While people generally think of orchids growing in tropical areas, there are quite a few that grow in British Columbia.
