Where I live, wild orchids are pretty hard to find. We do have several species of bog orchids here, I've only ever seen white and pink; as well as lots of carnivorous plant species.

Three native orchids are: Anoectochilus sandvicensis, Liparis hawaiensis and Platanthera holochila. If you passed by one of these, you'd probably never suspect it was an orchid. Three others are not native, but have adapted to the climate and are now found in many areas here: Spathoglottis plicata, Arundina graminifolia, and Phaius tankervilleae.
