Here’s an orchid growing in the Scifres-Maier Woods of the Celery Bog Park. It’s Aplectrum hyemale, or puttyroot. All you see is the broad green leaf. This leaf stays green like this all winter, curiously they disappear in the summer. I took this picture April 10, 2008 with a camera that is not too very good. I tried to find this plant again another day as I had a better camera but I had no luck finding it. You should be able to find it somewhere west of the swampy area on dry ground.
