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.
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!
