Listera australis – Small’s Twayblade

Notes

While looking for Swamp pinks to photograph on Easter morning, I was disappointed to find they were not in bloom yet this year. Since I had driven 45 minutes to reach this spot I decided to walk farther down the trails an explore the area more. I almost missed the small colony of orchids due to their diminutive size. This was a great find and made my trip.

Description

Listera australis is a very rare orchid in New Jersey, measuring 4"- 6" tall.
