Bog Orchid

This is actually a white rein orchid

I believe the scientific name is correct - Platanthera dilatata, but the common name is all over the map. I used "Plants of Coastal BC" (Pojar, Mackinnon) as my primary reference - it calls it "White Bog Orchid". Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) calls it "white bog orchid". eflora calls it "fragrant white bog orchid; fragrant white rein orchid; scentbottle". Take your pick.
