The Shrubs In Our Yard Are Orchids

The orchid is a Sobralia decora and it grows in the ground just like a regular shrub. The flowers last only for one day. Every few days 5 or 6 flowers will open up and a show like this one will happen maybe every two weeks in the fall and winter. This happened last Sunday and we had a number of friends come over the enjoy the orchid. Click here to see a closeup.
