|The "Thailand" themed orchid show features rainbow-colored displays of vandas|
For this post, I want to take a closer look at the genus of South Asian orchids, which were beautifully featured in this year's show: Vandas. Although vandas are a small genus (containing only 80 species), their flowers have the widest color range. The orchid show displayed dazzling arrays of blue, yellow, red, and even brown vanda blossoms.
I only wish I could associate names with more of these gorgeous flowers.
