Family ORCHIDACEAE

Malaxis unifolia Michaux

(Green Adder's-mouth)

In a wide variety of open to well-shaded sites, including roadside ditches, abandoned sand or gravel pits, old fields (sometimes beneath Bracken), lush mossy areas on granite or gneiss ridges, mixed woods, coniferous woods and bogs. In mesic to wet-mesic conditions, often growing in moss, especially Polytrichum. Blooms from July through early August. The typical form is common in Muskoka, but the two-leaved form (f. bifolia Mousley) is very rare.
