Re: Ground orchid

In addition to the light pink clump in the picture, we have four others--yellow, purple, deep pink [not quite red], and white. One of the things I like about them--aside from the fact that they require very little attention--is they bloom almost all year once they begin to get some age on them. Our oldest one, deep pink, sends up its first bloom spike in March and continues to produce bloom spikes well into November. I would imagine that in a more tropical climate, such as Hawai'i, it would bloom all year.

Very nice color isn't it. I saw these, primarily the yellow
color growing beside the roads may years ago when I was in
Hawaii and did what I was able to so far as circumnavigating
the islands of Hawaii, Maui and Kauai.
