Single Leaved Habenaria
In the open high altitude grasslands, Single Leaved Habenaria (ground Orchid) enchantingly allures the onlookers with its pure white flowers against the green wild grass. The leaf, usually only one, heart shaped and rounded, lies flat on the ground. Flowers are white in 1-5 bundles with bilobed petals. It is one of the first flowering herbs to appear at the onset of monsoons.
