This more dainty and ladylike member of its clan can be distinguished immediately by its leaves, four of which are arranged in opposite pairs, forming a whorl about midway on the slender and rather naked stalk. Only one or two whorls may occur on the stalk which grows not more than a foot or two high, but single pairs of leaves are often found above or even below the whorls. The thin-textured leaves are long-oval or lance-shaped with long, tapering points and slender stems. They are slightly hairy on the underside along the veins, and the margins are usually entire. The underside is also of a lighter shade. The oblong corolla lobes are pale pink, the elliptical-oval hoods are white, and the incurved hook is short and thick. The fragrant flowers are comparatively small, and delicately textured and toned. They are set on slender, hairlike stems, and are less numerous and fewer clustered than most of its kin. It is found in dry woods, thickets, and hills during May, June, and July, from Maine and Ontario to Minnesota, North Carolina, and Arkansas.
