    Default Blc. Greenwich 'Elmhurst'

    This is a lovely purple and yellow-green hybrid that I find very attractive. I just love orchids with bold colors that are energetic like this one. I hope you like it!

    Default Lovely!

    Bruce,

    That's reminds me of Louis' picture of Memoria Helen Brown from Orchids Through our Eyes. I started off as more of a yellow/red/orange lover and now I feel myself more and more drawn to the greenies--especially those with an electric magenta lip.

    Speaking of greenies...my first greenie purchase has three fat buds in a sheath now (Blc. Hawaiian Passion 'Carmela').

    Never a big fan of green flowers. There are a few, however, like Greenwich, that are exceptions to that 'rule'. Very nice, Bruce.

    I remember back a few years ago when "green flowers" were all the rage for weddings...I always thought they were really special, with their lovely lime color. This one is especially gorgeous, and I LOVE any orchids that wear rasberry lipstick as well as this one does!!
