Artist's Description

Photographed near St Helens, Tasmania. The first part of an article I have written on this plant follows:

Waxlip Orchid Glossodia major

The Waxlip Orchid (Glossodia major) is a harbinger of warmer weather and a welcome flash of colour in the bush after the drabness of winter. During springtime it is widespread in drier Tasmanian woodlands and grasslands in northern and eastern regions of the state and often after bushfires it presents an abundant and erratic display that is certain to delight. The orchid’s range extends beyond these island shores to many other parts of South-east Australia where the second Glossodia species, Glossodia minor, can also be seen.

“Waxlip Orchid, Glossodia major ” was featured in the group Black with a hint of colour
