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)

Arundina bambusifolia (graminifolia), the Bamboo Orchid
Still flowering in the Tropical House at the Bonsai and Penjing Museum. It's been flowering for so long I don't remember when it started. With the pot it's over 5 feet tall; it would be an attractive plant without the flowers so now....wow. It's an Asian, native from India and Nepal, through Southern China, and south into the Pacific.
