Sunday Flowers: Encyclia

Sunday, May 23, 2010

A type of orchid, the Encyclia is extremely fragrant - they can be smelled from a far distance before being seen. It is the most abundant orchid in Central Amazon and sometimes the plants completely cover the branches of the Macucu tree.

These flowers are about 1-1.5" across, and doesn't vary in color but they do have stripes on its petals.

Orchids are a favourite of mine. By any chance, have you seen the movie Adaptation? It's about a writer searching for an incredibly rare orchid in a far-flung location (among other things - it's a really good movie).
Ah, your signature is so cool! Very pretty.
