This is actually an orchid and a very unique one as well.
According to the Florida Native Orchid website, it has a very interesting way not to self-pollinate.
This orchid is amazing, how it naturally twists for growth and strength but stays so very fragile.
This is a native wildflower I haven’t seen at Chassahowitzka WMA before, as it was in a location many just look and drive by.
They are well hidden in this field of Bracken Fern, along with a couple of other wildflowers.
The stalks of the Pinebarren Aster, also known as Whitetop Aster, have multiple groups of flowers which make for a great photo subject.
Just beginning to bloom, the Swamp Rose grows along the banks of swamps and marshes, however, I have only seen these at Chassahowitzka WMA in one visible location.
