Pterostylis recurva

Native orchid of Western Australia. This orchid is common over a large area of the South West, but this one was photographed near Frankland River.

Dedicated to my husband whose hobby is finding and photographing the beautiful Australian native orchids and who is recovering from prostate cancer.

I retired to Frankland River 10 years ago, after living in Perth since 1971; originally I was from Shropshire, England.
Most of my work, is done in the lower south of Western Australia, mainly Frankland, my garden, and Albany. However, I do visit my family who still live in Perth, and try to take the opportunity to photograph other places.

    This is a real beauty. They are not in flower already surely? We are hoping to get down to the Stirlings next month to see the elusive Queen of Sheba orchids which we’ve somehow missed on every previous visit! This is a really excellent photo – great work. Peter.

  • Hi Peter, No, this was taken last year in September.
    We photographed the Eastern Queen of Sheba last year, at the Stirling’s, on 27th August. It is possible that with the rainy season starting late, that it could be a bit later. I know that the orchids in Frankland are later than usual. You might like to join the WAORCHID group http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/waorchids/ There are some great people here that share their orchid findings.

    How lovely, would you like to add to Endangered Plants group

  • I’m afraid that the jug orchid isn’t an endangered plant, but if I ever add a plant that is endangered, I will certainly add it to the group.

  • Looking for orchids is a lovely hobby which I share with my husband Jim. We have the WA Native Orchid Society visiting Frankland River the long weekend in October. That group is a great group for learning more about orchids. I’m always happy to help in any way I can. Try to get in the bush at the end of September and beginning of October. In some areas you will have difficulty in finding where to put your foot without standing on flowers. :-)

    I love this!

  • Thank you very much. It’s quite a common orchid in the South West corner and one of the few orchids that can be tall enough for me to photograph without lying on the ground.
