September Blooming Botanicals
Brassavola subulifolia
Brassavola subulifolia
Elegant blossoms with long, slender petals of clear green with a white and nearly heart-shaped lip. Blooming in clusters these beautiful flowers also provide a higher flower count than some other members of the genus, and makes a lovely display among the compact, terete (succulent-like) foliage. To top it all off, this dreamy Jamaican species has a citrusy night-fragrance!

A delightful addition to the indoor orchid collection! For those of us who like taxonomy and nomenclature: due to its' famously heart-shaped lip it was popularly known as Brassavola cordata, but that is a synonym that came later.

Stenoglottis Bill Fogarty
Stenoglottis Bill Fogarty
Enchanting miniature! An intriguing primary hybrid of two African species, Stenoglottis fimbriata and Stenoglottis woodii. The profuse, petite flowers bloom plume-like on upright stems and are pale pink with tiny magenta spots, blooming sequentially (mature buds towards the base open earlier than upper buds).

Deciduous! Like its parents, this hybrid is a deciduous perennial, seasonally losing all its leaves while the subterranean bulbs rest before the next growth season. This means that for a brief time their pots appear bare, but soon the past leaves are replaced by new rosettes of foliage. So, don't throw this out when all the leaves fall off - it's not dead, it's just resting!
