One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Orchis/Ponerorchis graminifolia flowering in the ground in Washington DC
Of course it's only been in the ground a month....
This is a really small orchid. I'm thinking it's less than 5 inches tall. I did a reasonable amount of research and couldn't really determine whether it's hardy here or not. They seem to be happy where they are. We'll see. It would be nice to have a nice colony of them
