Chinese Ground Orchid (Bletilla striata)

23 05 2018

I had the most fun shooting this particular group of blooms of a Chinese Ground Orchid (Bletilla striata). The plant is appropriately named–they only grow about 1-1.5 feet tall. They were in the hosta and fern shade garden at Meadowlark Botanical Garden and the bright green sunny, dancing shapes in the background made the hot pink just pop. I spread out a trash bag because the area was quite muddy and I had my tripod way low to the ground to get the shots. I think it was well worth the effort! (Nikon D850, Nikkor 105mm micro, f/9, 1/160 sec, ISO 320)

Blooming in my garden today: Dutch iris

11 05 2013

Dutch iris (Iris hollandica); these are a new addition to my garden and I think the combination of royal purple, bronze-chocolate and that pop of Big Bird yellow is stunning! There are just two in bloom today, with about 15 more awaiting their chance to turn heads. I’m looking for the bag I saved so that I can identify the exact cultivar; info to come!
