White Egret Orchid


By Meanie

White Egret Orchid (habenaria radiata)

This one has made my week!!
Small flower of about 15mm, but just stunning (in my eyes anyway)!

Oh dear, I feel like I'm gloating now.
They need it warm and humid to perform at their best, not cool and wet like this summer was. Much as they're called hardy, it would be a good idea to lift them.

Yes Meanie, it's impressive. Hope it last a while for you.

I think that it's blooming period will be quite short lived Tastyg, but as long as I get a result year after year then I don't mind at all!

What an incredible orchid! I've seen thousands of orchids before, but not this one.

It's natural habitat is the rice fields of Japan Delonix.

Thanks for the info! : >)

I'll have to research to see if it grows in California's rice fields of the Sacramento Valley.

Here's a link to Sacramento's Rice Fields:
