do you mean for indoors or the garden Marjorie?
in the garden I have dactylorhizza pale fuchsia pink/purple and I love them.
indoors I have a lovely phalenopsis purple/pink mottled and a brassia[?] yellow and brown like long spiders.

Thanks Eileen it was for indoors but I like the
Idea for the outside one. Do garden centres sell them?

some do but I got mine from a specialist grower. I do have native bee orchids in the garden but they are nature's gifts. I lifyed 4 and put them in a pot so I don't inadvertently dig them out.

I had an outdoor one once. It was called Bletilla I think. It was very pretty.

I love Lady Slipper Orchids & Cymbidiums. Scan through my Orchid Blog to see various photos from the NY Botanical Gardens.
