|Mountain Summer Spider Orchid
Persistence pays they say - well it could be true. We have looked for this orchid for a few years now and we finally found it. Not just a couple but almost 40 plants. This year we had rain and lots of it , rather than very low rainfall as we had in the past few years. The orchids seem to have responded.
We noted that the plant is quite variable in nature, with a combination of labellum and sepal club colours. Therefore I have added a page on the 4 variations we noted - just click on a photo to see a page of similar orchids.
