Neutral Todd_Boland On Jan 17, 2005, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This coralroot is very similar in appearance to the spotted coralroot. Its flowers are somewhat maroon to a burnt-orange colour and the lip is white with magenta spots. However, while the tepals of spooted coralroot open fully, those of the spring coralroot, remain mostly closed. This species grows in shaded, swampy wood in the SE States but strangely, grows in shaded canyons or subalpine meadows in the western mountain States of Arizona and New Mexico north to Wyoming.
