Spiranthes vernalis is a widespread Eastern US native species (New Hampshire southwest to Texas), that is virtually never grown in gardens. We are pleased to offer these from our property here in Wake County, NC, where they pop up in both pastures and lawns. The deciduous short green rosettes emerge in early spring, topped by 18" tall, twisting spiral spikes of up to four dozen tiny white flowers, starting for us in early June. After seed set, it goes dormant for the season. Spiranthes vernalis is quite easy to grow in acidic loamy soils, and is also a nectar source for several native bee species.
