    Long petalled Phrags come to mind. I grow them in those conditions in the summer out in the sunny porch.

    A few of the paphs too--rothschildianum, stonei (not stonei var. latifolium a.k.a. platyphyllum), philippinense, glanduliferum/wilhelminiae. But I'd stick a few big catts in front and grow the paphs behind them.

    Traci, I'd say go with Cattleyas or Dendrobiums.

    (Jason, Pete, don't hit me.)
