One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Psychopsis papalio...This gawky plant has been flowering ~monthly since November 2007
Bought it at the National Capitol Orchid Society Fall show and sale at the Arboretum and every month or so it squeezes out another one of these giant flowers from a new bud at the end of what is now a 2' long flower scape. It looks better with the garden (and flamingos) as a backdrop than it does inside. I hope it's enjoying the weather!
