Northern Green Bog Orchid
Platanthera hyperborea

This little orchid is tricky to find because of its yellowish green color. It grows in low, damp areas. I found this one growing along the Savage River trail in Denali National Park, it is the farthest point that personal autos can be driven without a special park permit. It may seem strange to think of orchids growing in Alaska, but they grow in all types of ecosystems on every continent except Antarctica!
