Platanthera psycodes /Orchid Family

What a great treat it was to find this spectacular orchid at Clingman's Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! The individual flowers are gorgeous and have a lovely aroma. I was saddened and angry to see that many of these beautiful plants had been mowed down by the Park Service workers on Clingman's Dome Road!
