Found this growing on a tree in Kentucky. Any idea what it is? I know nothing at all about flowers. I'm not even sure if it's an orchid. Apologies for the low quality pic, it was taken back in 2006 with an old flip-phone.

Probably an eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis). Those are widespread in the eastern US.

the "forest pansy" hybrid it flowered anyway from the broken off limb. DNA had a job to do.

I am not going to tell you what your plant is.
