A massed planting of Phalaenopsis orchids at Phipps Conservatory.
Like most public institutions, Phipps Conservatory is closed for the next two weeks at least. While we wait patiently for life to return to normal, old Pa Pitt will be reaching down into his immense stash of unpublished pictures to bring us some cheery color. These three slipper orchids were blooming just a few days ago in the Orchid Room. Above: Paphiopedilum Golden Acres.
Phragmipedium After Glo ‘John’s Happy Birthday.’

It seems to Father Pitt that it is about time for an orchid, so here is a Phragmipedium hybrid.
These orchids are identified only as “Phalaenopsis Group,” which probably means that somewhere along the line the identifying tags were lost.
