Just A Garden Plant

This orchid (Sobralia decora) grows in the ground and looks like any shrub in the garden. That is when it's not in flower. But the flowers have started to open for the season. There were 16 flowers open the other day and the old shrub is now a Cinderella. The flower lasts for only one day but new flowers open off and on for 4 months.
