Neofinetia falcata

Neofinetia falcata - Flower photo by Richard LindbergI have recently replaced the Neofinetia falcata that my puppy Maggie ate. I felt I had to since that is one of the must-have species in a collection.

The genus Neofinetia (Neof) contains 3 species. Neofinetia falcata grows in Japan, Korea and the Ryukyu Islands. Neofinetia falcata - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThe species grows on deciduous trees and get more light in winter. They are fragrant and tolerate a wide range of temperatures.

I bought it on eBay. It was quite inexpensive for a plant of this size. Certain varieties of this plant go for amazing amounts of money, up to $300,000. One can have a whole collection of just plants of this one species.
