Winter Donkey Orchid

Winter Donkey Orchids 1

We were walking along the Zamia Trail in Bold Park recently and stopped to admire these Winter Donkey Orchids (Diuris brumalis). They flower from June to August and add a splash of warmth and colour to a winter’s day. These native orchids grow north and south of Perth, but not over a very large area.
