Four new plants

Osmoglossum pulchellum - Flower photo by Richard LindbergOsmoglossum pulchellum - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThe Sonoma County Orchid Society puts on some classy events, but my favorite so far is this year's BBQ and Auction. I took three donations to the silent auction and came home with four very nice plants.

Osmoglossum pulchellum grows in Mexico down into Central America in mountain forests above 3500 feet. It is cold to warm growing, very fragrant and blooms in the fall and winter. When spikes appear, set a stake since it will need support.

I took this flower picture at a show and tell and I am excited to get the plant. Of course I will replace the flower picture as soon as I can. I prefer to have matching pictures as much as possible.
