Orchids

Purple lips

Purple is my favorite color and I like flowers with various hues of it, just like the Dendrobium bigibbum var compactum in the photo above. It is commonly known as the Cooktown Orchid. Its blossoms offer a wide range of violet color, from pinkish-mauve to lavender or purple and sometimes almost white, with the base of the labellum being a much darker purple.
