Big Botanical Day Out
Yesterday, I joined a group of botanists and botanical artists to go and find wild orchids. Our destinations were the cemeteries at Penrose and Tallong, two villages in the Southern Highlands. Though not all of them orchids, here is what we found.
Purple Fringed Iris
Diuris sulphurea aka Tiger Donkey Orchid
Thelymitra ixiodes aka Spotted Sun Orchid
Diuris punctata aka Purple Diuris, found at Penrose
