Two Phalaenopsis Orchids
Phalaenopsis 'Brother Pepride' x 'Brother Nobel Star'
These two Phalaenopsis are from Hawaii. The name tags were confusing since they seemed to have the complete parentage on the tag and had several names. The first one is a nice yellow, which isn’t the most popular Phalaenopsis color. The fact that it is spotted is a bonus as I really like spotted flowers.
The second Orchid is a little more typical of the species and also has a nice spotted appearance. I would have loved to visit Hawaii this winter but it wasn’t in the cards.
Our gardening season got shut down yesterday as we had a windy, rainy, cold, sleetly and snowy day. It is still snowing a little bit and there was enough overnight to cover the ground. I am sure it is just a minor set back but it is a little depressing.
