Platanthera ciliaris

To continue with the Platanthera theme, I had a real treat on Saturday to get to see Orange Fringed Orchid blooming in southern Jasper County at Fisher Oak Savanna. This is a recently discovered population. There were at least nine flowers growing in a forested wetland. It felt special to get to see them blooming.

Beautiful! I finally found this orchid last year in North Florida, and in Central Florida.... great shots, and another great blog! I just put up an orchid blog last night too :-)
