Orange-fringed Orchid Platanthera ciliaris

Description

I've seen orchids in this location both in 2017 and 2019 and fully expect to see them here again in 2021.

The name is "Orange-fringed..." but the plants I observed are more this yellow color.

Although considered vulnerable it was certainly thriving in this location and not threatened by foot or vehicle traffic.

Note my hand for scale. Note also the photo showing the stem. The ground cover it's growing from is thin and appears to me to be club moss. The slope is dry and only wet when it rains.

In 2014 this slope was bare mineral soil. I've been told that this slope and others on the property were hydro seeded, which may be how the orchids came to be in this location.

This individual was one of many, although there were more in 2019 than in 2017. They seem to space themselves apart about 1 to 2 meters.

For those familiar with the Summit Bechtel Reserve this plant is located in Adventure Valley across the road from the Low Gear Mt Bike venue and above the trail. It's found in other places around the Summit but the densest concentration I found was where I noted the location. It blooms in late July to early August.
