    This is a photograph taken on the 17 November 2017 which is a better image of the one I took yesterday of the same plant flowering outdoors in my Co. Meath garden. A beautiful and scented North American cousin of the native Irish species Spiranthes romanzoffiana and S, spiralis.
    A note. The cultivar name is Chadds Ford and not Chadd’s Ford as often encountered in various texts.

    Hi Brendan!

    It’s absolutely stunning! Very delicate looking!

    What is the scent like, how could you describe it?

    I wish there would be a scent button on the forum…:)

    Kind regards,

    Eszter

    Hi Brendan and Eszter,

    Fortunately my PC is so hi-tech that I have an orchid fragrance app downloaded which allows me to smell the photos from the screen! I think this one strikes of vanilla! Beautiful photo of a very distinctive flower and a plant every grower should try including myself!
