Compendium of Late Summer Orchids of Nova Scotia

September 15, 2015

This compendium of late summer orchids is from August 1 to September 15. The late summer orchids are not as elegant as the early orchids but still a treat to find and photograph.

Coral Root Orchid

I found the Coral Root Orchid in two places, Smiley's Provincial Park and surprisingly to me in Sir Sanford Fleming Park beside the Frog Pond trail.

Green Adder's Mouth Orchid

I have found this orchid in only one place, the coastal barrens south of Shoal Point. It is a challenge to photograph well due to it's small size and constant fluttering in the wind.
