One of my favorite fall-flowering perennials has to be the easy-to-grow native orchid, Spiranthes cernua var. odorata. I just snapped this photo in the garden where it’s been flowering for nearly a month. For us, it fares well in partial to full sun. Soil moisture hasn’t been critical, but err on the side of too much moisture.
This grows naturally in my woods – in the dark part of the woods at that. Of course, it is much smaller than my PDN spiranthes growing in prepped soil. Beautiful!
