    Some of the blooms in the orchid house in the royal gardens. Sorry guys, but most were untagged. However the ones that were I got the names. The first batch are untagged Dendro's. Enjoy

    Great photos! I love the first cattleya orchid. What an unusual color combo/ arrangement. Thanks for sharing all of these.

    Cheers,

    I love the one labeled D.C.K.I. Cana. The color combo is spectacular, and the shape is lovely, too. Thank you for sharing your pictures.

    angie, I would definately call that first catt an art shade. Something similar might be Lc. S.J.Bracey 'Waiolani'. The second catt looks a lot like Toshie Aoki, could be Blc. Alma Kee 'Tipmalee'. Look them up online and see what you think.
