    Hmmm, I'll have to give that some thought ... hadn't originally planned on a prize and would hate to exclude our non US members .................

    No, Becca, it is not. But it does indeed bear some resemblance, yes?

    So what is this, Tim?! Trying to eliminate ENTIRE continents all at once? Cheeky blighter. LOL. No, it is not an asian species either.

    I had to Google that one! Interesting flowers but no definitely not a Trudelia. The leaves are "solid" -- they don't split open and flatten out like those of most orchids. Instead they remind me of those of Angraecum leonis though it isn't an Angraecum either.
