Carol, the flower makes me think you have a kind of ground orchid.
look up "nun's orchard" /"nun's cap"/ "red crane"....it has more of the bronze red color opposed to pink.
Thanks Douglas and Peg. The nun's cap orchid is the one.
It is a cool looking plant.
You are lucky to have one. Orchid lovers would love to have one.
The plant maybe is not beautiful but when it Blooms it's beautiful and fragrant too.
Is there a "Plant Swap" section on here!!?? There are so many wonderful specimens I'd love to get!!
I don't know what it is, would sure love to have one!!!! LOL and yes I do have orchids in my house! ;)
Just focusing on the flower, it looks like an orchid in the Cattleya family. Looks like it might have a bulb at the base of the leaves, which is typical of many orchids.
I adore it! Wish it was in my yard! Lov'in it!
es una orquidea terrestre ,y su nombre es phalius.
