Summer orchids: Miltonia clowesii
« on: August 29, 2017, 05:21:42 PM »

Here's another of my orchids that recently bloomed. Miltonia clowesii is a native to Brazil producing 4 or more flowers on a single flower spike. The small flowers are mildly fragrant and have a rather waxy surface, but are richly colored in purple, bronze, and white. This particular plant surprised me with its flower, as it has had a rough time this summer, with our usually wet and hot weather. There are three other buds (off camera), giving me hopes that this orchid is here to stay.

Thank you for viewing, and please feel free to C&C.

Bob

I have seen a number of lovely orchids up at Longwood Gardens, but this one takes the cake. A 10 on the lovely scale!
