Scattered from West Virginia through North Carolina, and south into Georgia, grows one of the strangest plants that I remember as a kid.... the Adam-and-Eve orchid. This bizarre orchid produces a solitary, large, 8" tall green and white vertically striped leaf that remains up from fall until late spring. In spring, the 15" tall spike of tiny yellow to yellow-green flowers emerges... it's really dainty, so plant it near the path. Adam-and-Eve orchid grows best in moist shade, although summer drought during dormancy is not a problem.... great for a mass planting in the woodland garden.
