? & Epipactis palustris
Here come my Epipactis palustris at long last. It is the little thing on the right of the photo. Epipactis are tiny hardy orchids.
For a long time I thought the thing on the left was my Epipactis and carefully weeded around it but now I see the actual Epipactis springing up in different places, where they were sown, and looked up their foliage appearance so I know the thing on the left isn't them.
So what on earth is the thing on the left? I knew it had to be something good because the slugs were very interested in it. I have fussy slugs in my garden. They only eat the good stuff :)
The only other plant that I sowed here and hasn't shown its face is Trillium grandiflorum. But that is not a Trillium. Any thoughts?
