Platanthera chlorantha - Greater butterfly orchid

Botanical rarities 

The orchids in this category are extremely rare botanical varieties. Some of them are delicate plants that are less tolerant than the orchids in the 'Easy Garden' category. They are more suitable for a connoisseur audience...

The species Platanthera chlorantha is a magnificent orchid with two (rarely three) large, oval, horizontal leaves. The flower spike bears 10 to more than 20 white flowers tinged with light green or yellow. From a distance they look like white hyacinths, which is really surprising!

The Greater butterfly orchid usually grows in open areas, often in full sun, or in semi-shade in short grass, along paths, in dry areas and even in deciduous or coniferous forests.

Platanthera are widespread from the Atlantic coast to the Urals. They can be found up to an altitude of 2300 meter.
