Platanthera obtusata, ssp. obtusata, the Blunt-leafed Rein Orchis is found only in the far northeast corner of Washington but is very common further north and east. It grows "in the mountains east of the coastal ranges south of Alaska." The single "blunt" leaf is distinctive and with its flower spike the plant is only 35 cm tall. The whitish-green flowers are 2 cm and resemble a long-tailed bird in flight. It is not a striking species but has a quiet beauty all its own.
