The fifth orchid we've found in bloom this season is the Early Coralroot, Corallorhiza trifida, a rather uninspiring plant. We went to see it at Mount Rainier National Park with the Washington Native Orchid Society along with the Western Fairy Slipper, Calypso bulbosa var. occidentalis. We found only a few stems of the Early Coralroot but a lot of Fairy Slippers, as well as a lot of Heart-leaved Twayblades, both the green and red forms, Listera or Neottia cordata var. nephrophylla and Listera Cordata var. nephrophylla fma. rubescens.
