  1. aplectrum hyemale

    Aplectrum hyemale, commonly known as the puttyroot or Adam and Eve orchid, is a species of orchid native to North America. It is a perennial, woodland plant that typically grows in rich, moist, deciduous forests. The plant produces a single, large, oval leaf in the autumn which remains green throughout the winter, and then withers away by summer when a single flower stem emerges. The flowers are small, brownish-purple, and bloom in late spring to early summer. Its common name "puttyroot" is derived from the mucilaginous substance extracted from its ground tubers, historically used as a glue or putty.
