Orchids

Vanda Rothschildiana

In gardens, beauty is a by-product.  The main business is sex and death.

– Sam Llewelyn

These indigo flowers come from the Vanda Rothschildiana,  a hybrid orchid between of the Blue Orchid (Vanda coerulea) and the Euanthe sanderiana. I’ve enjoyed looking at the 5 inches wide flat flowers bloom for at least 4 weeks.
