Greenhood orchid

A number of greenhood orchids (Pterostylis species) flourish on forest floors. The largest are conspicuous in spring and early summer, when they produce a hooded flower. The flowers are mostly green, but may have pink and white markings. Pictured here is Pterostylis trullifolia, a small, winter-flowering greenhood.
