Around this time of year orchids can be seen poking up through the leaf litter of the forests, and also along the moist peatlands(bogs) of the Adirondacks.
This WHITE-FRINGED ORCHIS Platanthera blepharigottis can be found at the Paul Smith’s College VIC:
This ROSE POGONIA Pogonia ophioglossoides can also be found in similar areas:
Look for Grass Pinks or Calapogon tuberosus on bogs:
Earlier in June this PINK LADIES SLIPPER Cypripedium acaule could be found in mixed hardwood/conifer forests:
And several bogs are home to this DRAGON’S MOUTH Arethusa bulbosa:
