Default Piperia transversa

I posted a similar native species a couple days ago. Here are both of them for comparison:

Piperia transversa, the Flat-spurred Piperia


Piperia elongata, the Long-spurred Piperia


And a link that shows all five our native Piperias:
Native Orchids of the Pacific Northwest and the Canadian Rockies: Washington's Five Piperias

Both are lovely - but I especially like the long spurs!

Thanks, Sonya - they are really unusual, perhaps the most unusual of our native orchids.

Native orchids have become almost more of an obsession with us than the orchids I grow.
