The Garden Orchid , Spathoglottis unguiculata "grapette"

Spathoglottis unguiculata "grapette" - Ground Orchid. It is also known as The Garden Orchid. With another stop by the nursery we found a 3 gal pot of these ground orchids. The fragrance is a very strong and smells like grape koolaid. The foliage is palm like and produces successive flowering over time. I have heard that the can bloom year round. We now have 3 different colors of these ground orchids in bloom. Here are the pictures of the latest ground orchid addition.
