Platanthera metabifolia

15th May 2011

An orchid from Eastern Russia, Japan, Korea and China where it grows in woodland.
I have had problems managing its moist/dry growing cycle. It has a short dormancy after flowering and starts into growth in late autumn or early spring - it has done both for me but didn't behave as though it was happy about either.
On the plus side, it has been getting stronger annually and produced a flower this year.
