The greatness of art is not to find what is common but what is unique.
--Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-1991) Polish-born American writer.

This unique plant is found throughout the eastern United States and is part of the orchid family.  In Tennessee it is considered endangered.  It depends upon a specific type of fungi in the soil for its survival and tends to grow in colonies.
