Please help me ID this gorgeous orchid!
Please help me identify this lovely volunteer woodland orchid. It loves loamy soil and part to full shade. When in full bloom, it produces an eight inch (or so) inflorescence covered with many, many 1/4" purple flowers with white and a touch of deep magenta. PS pls ignore the Virginia creeper in the 3rd photo.
Give this link a look. These are the ground orchids found in Connecticut.
