White Egret Orchid
Botanical Name: Habenaria radiata
Found in China, Japan, Korea and Russia, the white egret orchid is also known as the fringed orchid, crane orchid or Sagiso and is one of Japan’s most famous orchids. It can have up to 8 flowers on its stalk and each flower is about 4cm wide.
Habenaria radiata is fast becoming endangered in the wild due to habitat destruction and requires some attention to grow in captivity.
However it still grows in the private gardens of orchid collectors, in non urbanised mountain areas at over 500m elevation and in protected Japanese bogs where flower viewing is allowed. Other varieties of habenaria have egret-like flowers as well, including some with variegation and different wingspans.
