    Thanks for the name, Lizgeo. I wonder if there are others or if that is the common name?

    Cheers,

    No, but I have one of those too . A few post up another member gave me the name of the Friendship Tree. The Plumeria or Frangipani is the tree next to the Friendship Tree.

    Thats an amazing greenhouse you have there Bruce. Very impressive.

    Another one for the books I guess: "If you need a rake to clean up fallen orchid leaves..."
