Sarcochilus ceciliae

(Fairy Bells)

A small lithophyte, this beautiful orchid grows in sheltered situations, commonly (but not exclusively) on rock-faces in creek beds and sheltered situations, sometimes in very large colonies. Individual plants form dense little clumps with thick, fleshy leaves up to 8cm long and 10mm wide, channelled, green or reddish-brown with spots. In summer it produces slender, erect racemes bearing up to a dozen small, pink flowers, each about 7mm across.
