Spathoglottis Orchids

On a couple of visits to local botanical gardens at the end of 2011 I spotted some orchids the likes of which I’d never seen before. They all were labeled as being Spathoglottis orchids. Also known as ground orchids, the spathoglottis orchids are evergreen plants with delicate flowers.

The first set I photographed were the Citrus Cooler Orchids

I then found another set of spathoglottis orchids labeled as Citrus Cooler that were totally different colors than the original one’s I had photographed.

I also found some Coconut White Orchids

And finally some Golden Passion Orchids

I really like the bright colors I’ve seen in some of the Spathoglottis orchids – I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for more of these delicate orchids to photograph.
