Western Coralroot, Corallorhiza maculata ssp. mertensiana

A member of the orchid family of plants, Western Coralroot is a saprophyte which means that it doesn't produce its own food, but lives on dead organic matter. It grows up to 20 in/50 cm tall with purplish or pinkish flowers each with a lip. It thrives along the Pacific Northwest coastal areas preferring generally moist, shady forests.
