    Could it be the Vanilla Orchid

    I have seen it growing in several places and did have it growing in my garden in Florida.
    Until that is the man who takes care of my garden there, while I am up home in Canada, dug it all out

    I never had it blooming yet but the stem and leaves look very much as in the picture shown

    Don't know the correct name, well do not remember the correct name for the plant

    It looks to me like a plant I know
    Vanilla orchid do not know correct name

    I have sen it growing in Botanical gardens i.e. Montreal and some spots in the U.S.

    I did have it growing in my own yard, was given a piece from a neigbhours garden where it was growing naturally.
    That is though in Florida. The man who takes care of my garden there, dug it up and threw it out while I was up north here in Canada.

    I have never seen it flowering though but seems from what I have heard, that when it bloom is very fragrant.

    Thanks for all your replys. I think it do's look like the ''string-of-bananas''.
