Sophranthe 'Blazing Treat', Angraecum comorense 'Gwen Copley', and Dendrobium speciosum at the US Botanic Garden Orchid
great show not only for sheer spectacle but for the rare and unusual specimens dotted amongst the sheer mass of flowering orchids. It's overwhelming; I don't even know Sopranthe; the UBC Plant of the Day last week was Darwin's Angraecum, and I was excited to see Dendrobium speciosum because Pat gave away a number of divisions from his personal plant last year and I have one. I can only hope someday to turn it into something like this plant!
