Orchid Epidendrum conopseum R. Br.
Green-fly Orchid is a perennial herb that grows on trees (epiphytic)
or rocks (epipetric). The glossy evergreen leaves of this plant
can be found on shaded limbs of southern magnolia and live oaks
as well as other hardwoods in swamps and on bluffs. In fact, the
greenfly orchid is the only orchid found on trees in Georgia.
green-fly orchid is not listed at the federal level and is listed
as unusual at the State level, where it has been recorded in 20
counties in the southeastern coastal plain of Georgia. Timber harvest
is the major threat to these plants.
