Winter Orchids at Phipps Conservatory

Every season is colorful in the Orchid Room. Here are some of the orchids that were blooming just after Christmas.

Dendrobium “Sokol Blue.”

Liparis condylobulbon “Henry Shaw.”

An unidentified hybrid (there was no tag) that Father Pitt would guess probably involves Miltonia and Odontoglossum.

Paphiopedilum Whitemoor “Norriton” FCC AOS. The “FCC AOS” means it was awarded a First Class Certificate by the American Orchid Society, which means the AOS thinks this cultivar is pretty peachy.

Dendrobium bracteosum.


 Camera: Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3.
