Platanthera blephariglottis (Willd.) Lindley

(White Fringed-orchid)

In sphagnum moss, in open wet areas in Black Spruce and/or Tamarack bogs or on the boggy shores of lakes. Often growing with other typical bog plants including Grass-pink, Rose Pogonia, White Beak-rush, Virginia Chain Fern, Bog Rosemary, Bog Laurel, Leatherleaf, Round-leaved Sundew, Screwstem and Carex oligosperma. Mainly blooms from mid July through early August. Distribution maps for this species reveal more stations in Muskoka than in any other county or district in Ontario (Whiting & Catling, 1986; White, Maher, Catling & Whiting, 1982). Not uncommon in suitable habitat in Muskoka, but rare in Ontario.
