Caladenia saccharata   Sugar Orchid Endemic

Caladenia saccharata whole Caladenia saccharata flower

This is a very small orchid no more than a few centimetres across and tall and so is easily missed. It can grow in clumps but we saw only ones and twos by looking hard. The small white flower has bluish markings on the inside of the labellum edges just about visible and also has dark hairs on the backs of the sepals.
