Rosy Twistedstalk (Streptopus lanceolatus): Common herb often found on the forest floor, especially near edges where there is only moderate shading, from low to elevations to treeline. Distinguished most easily from other Clasping twistedstalks (S. amplexifolius) and Small Twistedstalk (Streptopus streptopoides) by rosy colored flowers and intermediate size without branching stems.

Collections appear to be from Juneau and south in the region. Southeast Alaska may represent the northwestern most edge of the range.
