Tuberous Grasspink (Calopogon tuberosus)
|Common Name||Tuberous Grasspink|
|Latin Name||Calopogon tuberosus|
"Calopogon tuberosus - wild pink orchid"
"Calopogon comes from the Greek words meaning beautiful beard. The prominent hairs, the beard, on the lip identify it. This species is a plant of moist areas and is most abundant in pineland bogs. It is known as grass pink because of the long, narrow, grass-like leaves. It grows 2 1/2–4 feet tall, with 2 or more flowers arranged along the stem. The blossoms are rose-pink to pale orchid and are about 2 inches across (248). " 
Relatively rare. Though native to Nova Scotia, this plant was somewhat endangered prior to the demise of humanity. It can be found in "bogs or meadows with wet, acidic soil."
