    A first bloom for me of Platanthera ciliaris. I received the plant last year and am happy and a bit surprised that it bloomed for me. I had never seen it in person.

    Gorgeous indeed. I’m a sucker for a nice orange.

    I saw this on FB so i may have already said this but, several Platanthera species including P. cristata grow native in my region, i went to a state park recently and saw a lot of them by a lake. Glad to see people having success with native terestrials, they're declining and not easy to grow so keep it up.
