7 Weeks to go – Time to out those Hoodies

It’s only seven weeks to go before the Southern Suburbs Orchid Society (SSOS) Spring Show commences.  Here is a preview to catch a glimpse of a special type of orchid that you may find at our Show.

pterostylis  concinna-1Southern Suburbs Orchid Society Club LogoThe genus Pterostylis are also more commonly known as Green hoods, Rusty Hoods or Maroon Hoods. They are all members of one of the unlikeliest flowers to be called an orchid.  According to Rex Johnson from (Still More Orchids in Victoria, 2004), there are more than 120 species in Australia, with more than 60 of them growing in Victoria and another 37 in Tasmania; although many are common to both states.

This is why we open our doors, show off our award-winning plants and help solve your most vexing questions about orchids, their culture and celebrate the fascinating world of the Orchid genus at our splendid “Orchid Show and Sales Extravaganza”.
