Two color versions of the western coralroot orchid growing high in the mountains of Stevens Pass near where the dense forest meets the edge of a clear blue subalpine lake. To the left is the typical fuschia-purple coloring, and to the right is the paler vesion (forma pallida). I found it unusual to see these growing together like this, but in my first summer in Washington, I plan to expect the unexpected!
