Isotria verticillata
Large Whorled Pogonia

The Large whorled pogonia is not a pogonia at all. The genus Isotria contains two species, both of which can be found in Western North Carolina. While neither are common, the other species, Isotria medeoloides, is listed as a threatened species by the USF&WS. This species, Isotria verticillata, is a little easier to find. Flowers are rather large and can be considered showy.
