There were so many gorgeous blooms with the orchid show, that it is taking two posts to show just a small part of them. The show was stuffed full of a huge variety of blooms! Color and shapes were awesome, so let’s take a small tour of some more of the beauty in this room.
Pink, white, yellow, red, purple, variegated, spotted, two color, you name it and it was there. Ribbons for award winners hung from a lot of the entries.
Here are just a few of the more unusual varieties. This one is Miltoniopsis Maui Mist ‘Golden Gate’.
Odontobrassia Pisgah Recluse. I loved the shape and color of this one.
Oncidesa Jiuhbao Gold.
Paphiopedilum Julius. This genus is related to Lady’s Slippers, and I found a Lady’s Slipper in our woodland area just this past week! I got a photo and I’ll show you that on the next garden post.
Paphiopedilum Pisgah Midnight ‘Bandit’, such a dark color almost black!
Paphiopedilum Winston Churchill.
Lots of Phalaenopsis, in such pretty apricot, lavendar and white varieties.
Psychopsis Mendenhall ‘Hildos’. This one looked like it was about to fly away.
On the miniature display, Renanthera Tom Thumb was about the size of a quarter.
Rhyncholaelicattleya Kure Beach Lenette.
Wilsonara Opalescent ‘Snow Pixie’.
Zygopetalum Mighty Explosion had green petals with spots, one of the few green varieties.
Large displays were organized by the society’s location in the state.
It was a feast for the eyes, with a lot of interesting details to see if you look closely.
I hope you enjoyed the orchid show! Do you have a favorite from the show on either yesterday’s post or today’s?
