Epidendrum Orchids

© 2012 Patty Hankins

Epidendrum orchids are one of my favorite groups of orchids. I love the delicate little flowers, and what looks almost like a little face on each one. I’ve seen them in amazing shades of red, orange, yellow and pink.

Epidendrum orchids are native to the western hemisphere – found from South Carolina to Argentina. They grow in all sorts of locations and conditions – ranging from jungles to along the shore.

I’ve photographed Epidendrum orchids on both of my recent visits to Longwood Gardens, I hope you enjoy my photos of them.
