Sparse-flowered bog orchid (Platanthera sparsiflora)

The sparse-flowered bog orchid (Platanthera sparsiflora) can be found in moist habitats in California and other parts of western North America. The small flowers of this perennial herb have a similar structure to those of the Sierra bog orchid (Platanthera dilatata var. leucostachys), but are almost entirely green and more broadly spaced.
