White Egret Flower (Habenaria radiata)

I discovered a new orchid tonight - the White Egret Flower (Habenaria radiata). "The White Egret Flower is an Asian species exhibiting a beautiful and impressive pearly white flower with a broad heavily fringed lip that resembles an egret in flight." This information comes from The Wild Orchid Company site, where you can order Habenaria bulbs, although it doesn't look like you can order until late August. There is a picture of Habenaria radiata here and some information on growing Habaneria here.
