Time for a bit of colour – Zygopetalum Orchid

P1010118 (2)

Cold and moderately wet, still – and little to entice you out and and in to the garden – so best to enjoy houseplants and glasshouses and conservatories and indoor-iness generally. Zygopetalum are orchids that last in flower almost as long as the more common Phalaenopsis (moth orchids) but with a touch more drama. The blue in this specimen positively glows as evening draws in. Soon there will be extravagant orchid displays in Kew and Wisley, so keep an eye out for dates and details.
