Description

Pale green orchid is a native wildflower in the Orchidaceae (orchid) family found in eastern and central North America. It is found scattered throughout the state in wet areas such as floodplain forests, hardwood, white-cedar, and cypress swamps, riparian thickets, and wet meadows. There are two varieties of this orchid, one found in the north and one in the southern part of its range.

In ideal conditions, it can form small colonies and spreads by tubers. It is small reaching a mature height of 2 feet and with of 1 foot. In the south, it can bloom spring into fall with tall spikes of understated hooded yellow-green flowers.  The flowers have a nectar spur that extends out the back end of the flower and are visited by moths.

It prefers full or partial sun, wet to moist conditions including standing water, and sandy or sandy-peaty soil. It can be difficult to cultivate and is generally not for sale. Does not transplant well.

It is considered threatened or endangered in some states due to loss of habitat.
