 Full Plant

Tall, multi flowered plant with 2 leaves.

Flowers grow in the grasslands and are very hard to see as you walk around.   Our information was that the flowers grew in the centre of the reserve, to our dismay the centre was mowed and initially we couild see nothing.  But walking around the edges we found one then a few more and then quite a few flowers.  Unfortunately there seemed to be also hybrids in the area as well.  As we finished photographing we walked the cut areas and started to see small plants, almost ready to flower then soon we found some fully flowering plants.
