Platanthera ciliaris
Yellow fringed orchid

Platanthera ciliaris is a late season delight. There are other orchids that bloom here at the same time but none are quite as showy. While I had been expecting to find the species in a moist meadow these plants were actually growing on a rocky, steep road bank under Rhodedendron. Plants are majestic and can reach three feet tall. Photographed the first week of August.
