Corallorhiza maculata var. maculata fma. rubra
This is the red-stemmed form of the Spotted Coralroot, Corallorhiza maculata var. maculata fma. rubra. The stems in this variety can be a pinkish tan, red, yellow or brown and some of these color forms are named, but these are a dark reddish-pink or reddish-purple. It has very tiny flowers and in the locations where we find it is often the only color form to be found.
