Broad-leaved Helleborine

Broad-leaved Helleborine
The Broad-leaved Helleborine is usually counted among our native orchids, since it has naturalized in many different locations, but it is in fact not a native and not even a North American species. It was brought to eastern Canada by settlers in the 19th century who used it to curdle milk, and has since spread across southern Canada and the United States. Interestingly, we've found it mostly long railways or old abandoned tracks.

What exquisite little beauties!
Plants imported along old trails...in the Mojave Desert it’s the Sacred Datura, still scattered along ancient human footpaths. Might make a good book?

I did not know they can be used to curdle milk! I always thought heleborines are just pretty! One of my grandnieces remarked they would make great windowsil orchids for the Barbie house, having proportionally even bigger blossoms than any specimen in her grannies phalaenopsis collection.
