Dainty Leek Orchid - Prasophyllum plumaeforme
Growing to half a metre in height (over 1' 6") and being very slender, it appears quite wispy when growing over short (after fire) regenerating vegetation. You would think being so distinct that it could be seen from some distance, but it only becomes obvious when you are quite close, so surprisingly is easily overlooked. The plants I have seen have been in small scattered groups, further permitting it to blend into its sandy heath environment.
Mainly found on elevated flat to gently sloping sandy hills and although more common after a summer bushfire, they can still be found without, providing the area is not heavily overgrown. Normally flowers September to November, with October being the main period.
