The Elusive Ghost Orchid Drawing Visitors
Posted by Benjamin Dona on Thursday, July 23rd, 2009 at 1:29pm.
For the third year in a row, the rare ghost orchid has made an appearance at the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Believe it or not, this unique opportunity is drawing visitors from all over the country. Visitors are up 51% for the month of July and that is great for business at the Audubon run park.
Named for the illusion that it is floating in midair, the ghost orchid typically blooms between June and September. For visitors to Southwest Florida, catching a glimpse of this elusive orchid usually means wading through the swamp in places like the Fakahatchee Strand. Having them show up in Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, with its boardwalk and telescopes, is indeed a very fortunate treat for people to see this rare and beautiful flower.
