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)

Tropical color in the greenhouses: Asclepias curavassica, Vanda sp., Scutellaria ventenatii
Still, just in case I got homesick for that tropical color, I found these guys among Brad's plants. The Vanda is a remarkable specimen with those huge flowers on that compact perfect plant. The Scutellaria are propagations from a plant I brought back from Florida a few years ago.
