A literal Canadian Jewel! Found across North America this orchid is also known as the rattlesnake plantain because of the broad rounded leave shape resembling a plantain and the pattern on the orchids leaves resemble a snake's skin. Throughout North American history the Goodyera oblongifolia has been used by Native Americans to treat snakebites, burns, cuts and many other ailments as a poultice, however we recommend seeing a doctor instead.
