    Default Yellow sobralia

    Until a month ago, a friend used some space in my greenhouse. He grew mostly botanicals from S. America. This is a picture of a yellow sobralia. The flower literally only blooms for one day.

    He and the sobralia retired and moved to FL. a few weeks ago.

    Beautiful bloom. Hard to capture these if they only last a day.

    Cheers,
