White Fringeless Orchid Mural

July 25, 2016

The 9th of the Endangered Species Murals is recently completed in the town of Berea, Kentucky- featuring the first plant in the series, the beautiful and strange White Fringeless Orchid. This two-foot tall ghostly white orchid is found in only a very few locations in the Southeast, having lost much of its habitat to logging, road-building, and other development. Painted by Roger Peet and Tricia Tripp, working with the stalwart forest activists at Kentucky Heartwood and sponsored by the Center for Biological Diversity. There’s a nice little bit of press on the mural here. If you haven’t seen the other murals in this project, I recommend searching the blog for them (at least until I get my act in gear to link them all to one page). Onward to the next!
