Clowesia russelliana (email for availability)

This orchid is found in dry open forests in many places, blooming in the Summer through the Fall. uniquely, the flowers have both male and female parts! The flowers are a cream-ish green striped with darker green and come in dense, abundant clusters that hang beautifully and harbor a wonderfully sweet fragrance. The creamy green color reminds me of the “glow in the dark” type of green, although the flowers do not glow in the dark. This is a really unique species that would fit great into a collection.
