Another plant identification

Please help me to identify a plant that, in the past two
years, has become quite prevalent in my yard.  I seem to
recall someone telling me that it's a variety of orchid,
but I'm not sure.

Anyway, it grows from a VERY deep root (which cannot be
pulled up without breaking the stem), has pointed, single,
leaves, ribbed longitudinally and growing on alternating
sides of the stem.  It appears to have small, green flowers
on a head that tends to hang from the top of the stalk.

Thanks in advance.
