Large Whorled Pogonia (Isotria verticillata)
The large whorled pogonia is one of the few orchids I've invested a massive amount of time looking for ranging nearly a decade, and have never seen it in flower. This one was photographed as part of a colony in a secret location and is perhaps the only colony in existence in the state of Florida. The usual range starts in Georgia and continues up the East Coast into Canada. One of these days I'll replace this photo of one in bloom.
