    We got this one blooming. One of my favorites, and a native to boot.

    Lovely blooms and photos, Tami!

    My fav is the Darwinara. Partly because it's blue - and I mean really blue! And partly because it must be so cool to have a plant named after your husband!

    Thanks for looking, everyone. Darwinara has a beautiful scent too. Darwin did pick it out, not because of the name, but he fell in love with the color. It's 'his' orchid. It has neo in it's breeding; I wish I'd gotten a pic of the neat spur. The color in the pic is correct, too (how'd THAT happen?).
    The cochleada is special to me in that it's a Florida native. This one is mounted on cork. I would love to photo it in it's habit!
    Thanks, Pavel, we ordered the asco while we were on vacation (saw it in the AOS magazine). It arrived in bud the night before we got home. It's a gorgeous plant with roots everywhere and we are stunned by the midas gold blooms. Glad you enjoyed the pics.
    Tami
