    Default Platan cristata ~ can't find info ~

    I've fallen head over heels in love!!!



    I took this photo quite recently at a private garden near my home,
    and I was told that this terrestrial orchid is native to this area of southeast N.C.
    (but I wonder if they only intended to convey that it was hardy here?).

    Either way, I wonder how can I obtain it for my garden?

    I can find virtually nothing about Platan cristata online
    I would truly appreciate any help.
