At this point, I would have to say the rare Ghost Orchid from Florida. You will need to include a picture for ID. Grin

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.
Thanks.

Give this link a look. These are the ground orchids found in Connecticut.
