July 22, 2005
The first time I saw one of these plants it was in bud, I knew it was an orchid, but I had no idea which one it was. The plant grows in deep shade, so when I finally found one in bloom it was difficult to photograph. I had to delete a lot of pictures! This was the best photo I was able to get. I was surprised to read that it is a non-native orchid.
