North Wind Bog Orchid (Platanthera aquilonis)

Date

July 7, 2019 10:33 AM MDT

Description

Completely spurless form of what otherwise appears to be Platanthera aquilonis*. We have 120+ locations mapped in the BC Peace River region. The project to map the range of these spurless plants is ongoing as well as collection of whole plants, flowers in spirit and silica.

This old cutline location is the mother lode! There were so many Platanthera orchids along here that we gave up on looking at them all, but many of them are spurless like these.

*there are other differences (like the abruptly-widened lip petal base) but the lack of a spur is the easiest to see for field ID purposes!

Two leftmost slippers are pale yellow (recently opened judging by the position of the synsepals). The two buds in the process of opening also have pale yellow slippers. I believe the slippers of this hybrid frequently start off as some shade of yellow, before fading to a lighter shade of yellow or near-white.

hsteger

Date

July 2020

Description

The number of plants at this site increased from a single specimen in 2015 to five in 2020. The plants are in a relict prairie almost in full sun which may be the cause of the very pale yellow colour of the flowers. The plants are floriferous with a crowded inflorescence. There is a second site in a relict prairie in almost full sun about 1 mile to the east which I have monitored since 2006. Here the plants were the same - pale yellow colour with a crowded inflorescence. I have not initiated an observation for this latter site since the colony appears to be in rapid decline and no plants were observed in 2020.
