Coeloglossum viride var. virescens is supposed to be native to Washington but no one seems to know where it can be found. It is, however, very common in the Canadian Rockies and it is there we see it when we are in British Columbia or Alberta. It grows to 60 cm tall and the flowers are 2-3 cm in size. At first glance it looks like one of the green Platantheras but the long, tongue-like lip is distinctive. It is know both as the Long-bracted Green Orchis and as the Frog Orchid. There is a smaller variety of the species with fewer flowers and shorter bracts that is found only much further north from Alaska to Newfoundland.
