5 Rattlesnake Orchid (Goodyera Pubescens) Bareroot
WE DO NOT SHIP TO CALIFORNIA!!!!!
Downy rattlesnake plantains are one of the many species
of orchids native to eastern North America. They can be
found growing in dry to moist upland woods with acidic
soils. The plants are low growing with stems that creep
along the soil surface, often dividing and forming small
colonies. Leaves lay close to the soil in circular
arrangement (basal rosette) around a central growing
point. Leaves are oval and about 1.5 to 2.5 inches long.
Downy rattlesnake plantain has striking leaves marked
with a network of silvery veins and a broad stripe down
the center, resembling the skin of a snake. All parts of the
plant are covered with a very fine downy hair especially
noticeable on the bloom spike. Despite the name, downy
rattlesnake plantain is not related to the common lawn
weed plantains, but has similar appearing rosettes of
leaves. The evergreen foliage is attractive year round,
with individual leaves lasting 3 to 4 years. It flowers in
late summer with small white flowers densely packed on
a slender cylindrical spike, 6 to 18 inches tall. Downy
rattlesnake plantain occurs in the entire eastern half of the
U.S. and Canada from Ontario and Quebec south to
Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and Florida.I am sorry but we do not ship outside the US, & we cannot ship to Canada, or Hawaii. Thanks so much!
