    Default Rhynchostylis retusa

    My second favorite orchid currently in my collection and last photo I will probably post for this season unless my neighbor sends me some good ones over the summer. Bloomed late this year but was worth the wait. And the fragrance is heavenly! Apologize for "in situ" pic from the shadehouse but everybody is all tucked in for the summer.

    Thanks everyone.
    It's a lot of flowers for sure. When they are all open I would guess there has to be more than 100 on each spike.
    In all honesty I have never counted but that number would be typical per the official description.
