Christmas orchids

It’s that time of the year when our Dipodium sp. indigenous terrestrial orchids begin to flower around the paddocks in the vicinity of eucalypts. The orchids pushed their way through the soil up to a month previously to appear as purple or green leafless, ‘asparagus’-like stalks. They take their time to flower after that.

Those in the photograph are possibly ‘Dipodium atropurpureum‘. I’ll get a better look at it after more flowers mature.

Orchids at Christmas

The Hyacinth Orchid (Dipodium Punctatum) makes an appearance around the property at this time of year.
