Orthilia secunda (L.) House
Common Name: ONE-SIDED PYROLA
Coefficient of Conservatism: 7
Coefficient of Wetness: 0
Wetness Index: FAC
Physiognomy: Nt P-Forb

Moist forests, coniferous and mixed; borders of thickets and dunes; sometimes in deciduous forests and other drier places.

 The axis of the inflorescence is turned ± horizontal at flowering time, so the flowers hang like little bells; however, the axis soon becomes fully erect and the ripe fruit remains pendent (not always so clearly 1-sided).
