NZ Native Orchids

New Zealand has over 160 species of Native Orchid

 
Sun Orchid Greenhood Caladenia Odd Leaf Orchid Beard Orchid Epiphytic Orchids
 

They possess small, delicate, exquisite flowers which come in a vast array of colours and forms.

Found from the coastline to the alpine herb-fields, these shy creatures are a much overlooked part of the New Zealand Native Flora.

This site gives descriptions & photos of most of the recognised species, along with details on where to find them, the flowering times, online editions of the Native Orchid Group's Journals ... and a whole lot more.

160 species are illustrated and described in the Photo Section


The NZ Native Orchid Group consists of members throughout New Zealand and the world who are united in the conservation of our Native Orchids.
