I just got back from the mountains of western North Carolina and saw several orchids in the wild, including C. acaule and C. parviflorium var. pubescens. The C. p. pubescens have more brown coloration in the tepals than northern plants I've seen. Is it possible that these plants are rather the southern form of C. parviflorum var. parviflorum? The plants are large sized unlike the northern populations of C. parviflorum (called var. makasin by some, I think). Any comments on these plants would be appreciated.
