First Greenhood Orchid

greenhood orchidSo far we have found three different Greenhood or Pterostylis orchids on the property. (According to Wikipedia there are 200 varieties, but probably not in the SW of WA).  This is the earliest to flower and is the Pterostylis vittata or Banded Greenhood.  We are not likely to see the recurva Jug Orchid and nana Snail Orchids until August.
