Striped coralroot (Corallorhiza striata)

Striped coralroot (Corallorhiza striata), like most other orchids of the same genus, lacks chlorophyll and therefore relies upon a parasitic relationship with fungi in order to obtain nutrients. As the name suggests, the beautiful wildflowers are adorned with stripes, easily differentiating this species from other coralroots.
