Description

My first flowering plant of Round Leaf Orchid and my 28th species of Orchid in the Middle Atlantic, USA, in flower. The several year slump is broken. This is a woodland Orchid and does not grow in bogs! This species has never been known from Catoctin Mountain Park and was found last summer. When I saw it, all the buds were open and there were eighteen flowers.
I only have one species for Japan Calanthe discolor which I found when I was there in the 1960's going to high school. My niece found a native species of Cymbidium there about ten years ago on a property my sister owns.

Description

The only naturalized exotic species of Orchid growing in the Middle Atlantic area of the USA. Some people believe this is becoming an Invasive Exotic in some areas. This one is in bud with the second photo showing a Close Up of a bud. The late Frederick Case describes this species in his book Orchids of the Western Great Lakes Region (1964). A great book for ID'ing Orchids in the NE US. I think there was a second edition printed the 1970's or 1980's. He also describes a second exotic Orchid in this book: Dwarf Purple Orchis (Orchis purpurella) which was found near Timmins, Ontario, Canada, before 1961 and may be naturalized by now.

Along with the Asteraceae, they are one of the two largest families of flowering plants, with between 21,950 and 26,049 currently accepted species, found in 880 genera. Selecting which of the two families is larger is still under debate, as concrete numbers on such enormous families are constantly in flux. Regardless,...
