White Egret Flower & Casablanca – Showa Memorial Park, Tokyo

Pecteilis radiata is a species of orchid found in China, Japan, Korea and Russia. It is commonly known as the white egret flower, fringed orchid or sagisō.

It is not to be confused with the white fringed orchid Platanthera praeclara, which is a North American species. The Sagiso is the official flower of Setagaya ward, Tokyo.

The white egret flower that blooms at this summer time is very cute and lovely as if the heron was flying in the sky. Casablanca has a long flowering season and seems to be still fine.
