Orchid Walk | See the orchids of Wild Ozark


Orchid Walks are booked throughout the year, but to see blooms you’ll need to be flexible with dates.

Book a walk to see the orchids of Wild Ozark. Most of the blooms are in May, and they don’t last very long.

Check with me before you check out so I can let you know if they’re still blooming if it’s the flowers you are most interested in seeing. The leaves last a bit longer than the flowers. This listing is live while at least the leaves can be seen and I try to update below as to what stage they’re in when I spot them.

All orchids of Wild Ozark bloom at different times. I’ll update here with pics of each and how they look for the various dates scheduled for the walks. Even without blooms, the leaves of Rattlesnake plantain are gorgeous and worth seeing.

  • Showy Orchid (Galearis spectabilis)
  • Lily-leaved Twayblade (Liparis lilifolia)
  • Adam and Eve orchid (Aplectrum hyemale)
  • Rattlesnake plantain (Goodyera pubescens)

Other orchids we could possibly encounter include Lady’s Tresses (Spiranthes cernua) and Three Birds orchid (Triphora trianthophora).
