August Orchids

I have had some beautiful orchid blooms in August. I have had several of these cattleyas. But after a time , other orchids begin to be more interesting. Like the spider orchid (Brassia) below. This one has been in flower for at least 2 weeks.

Posted by PicasaPhragmipedums are related to the slipper orchids and are native to Mexico and South America. This one Phrag. Donald Russell (Demitria x longifolium) I got at an orchid show at The Anniston Museum of Natural History several years ago. This year it produced 3 flower stalks and each one has had at least 2 flowers. I am anxious to see how many I will actually get. Those long twisted petals are just exquisite!
