Platanthera hookeri (Torrey ex A.Gray) Lindley

(Hooker's Orchid)

Usually in partial shade, but sometimes in open areas or full shade, most commonly in older mixed acid woods dominated by White Oak, Red Oak, or Trembling Aspen. In mesic to wet-mesic sites, especially where there are good accumulations of humus. Often with Large-leaved Aster, Low Sweet Blueberry and Bracken. Peak bloom in early June. Unlike many of our other orchid species, there are no Muskoka records prior to 1970. Rare in Muskoka.
