Native Orchids in Flower

- posted by Rosey Pounsett

Spring is a great time to see local native orchids in flower. Our Native Forest Reserves, Conservation and National Parks are the ideal spots to walk through keeping a sharp eye out for the small and delicate orchids that flower at this time. Lake McIntyre has it's own small patch of native orchids - Caladenia latifolia, or more commonly known as Pink Fairy Orchids. The orchids have only been noticed relatively recently, although the dedicated volunteers have been keeping an eye out for them this season to ensure they are protected from being trodden on. Please take care when looking at the orchids as they are small and can be easily trodden on.
