Beautiful and decorative, with a stout, hairy stem, one to two feet tall and a few handsome flowers, rich and harmonious though not brilliant in coloring, with a lip about an inch long, dull-white, veined with purple, and brownish or purplish sepals and petals, very long, narrow, and twisted. This grows in mountain woods and is found around Yosemite. There is a picture in Miss Parsons's Wild Flowers of California. C. Californicum is similar, but with more flowers, the sepals and petals greenish-yellow, the lip pinkish. C. parviflorum has a yellow lip and purplish sepals and grows in northern woods, across the continent. None of these plants is common.
