Orchids


I really don't know much about this orchid. It blooms every year around late October. The blooms are long lasting and a real eye-catcher:

I took a picture and asked people from the local orchid society what it was, but they couldn't decide. The only thing they did agree on was that it probably wasn't a native orchid.

It looks so delicate but survives on virtually no care.

Happy gardening!

  1. I'm guessing its Dendrobium anosmum.
    Quite common in my region.
    Goggle it up and see other images.
    See if it matches.
