Love Passion Island Romance Orchid


x Potinara 'Love Passion Island Romance'

An orchid with a delicate and beautiful shading of several colors that fit into the fall season well (even though it was blooming late last spring). There wasn’t a whole lot of information on this orchid or its genus. It did have several spikes blooming at the time and was quite breathtaking.

Yesterday we were working on a new garden (new for us) on Long Island Sound. It sure was a pretty setting and the garden is going to be easy to get into shape. The highlight of the day, for me, was sitting along the jetty in the backyard for lunch. I tossed in a couple of chunks of Kentucky Fried chicken to feed the minnows of various species of fish. They seemed to like it until a couple of crabs came up and started grabbing the chicken and fighting amongst themselves. It seemed like we had our own little nature show being acted out in front of us.

It is a very pretty orchid. I would like to get an orchid, but I am in love with every one I come across. May wait and go to the orchid place near me and buy one that is not in flower....and be surprised!

This is a gorgeous orchid! I cannot wait until my green house is set up so I can grow things like this.
