Stanhopea Wardii Aurea


Another variety of my Stanhopea opened its flowers today – Stanhopea Wardii Aurea. This Stanhopea native to Nicaragua, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Venezuela. This orchid is nicely sized with very pleasing strong vanilla scent.

The flowers are showy deep yellow with small purple spots. Flowers are large and nicely fragrant. This season it’s developed 5 flower spikes and the one in the picture the first one opened. Other flower spikes are still very small at this stage so I will be enjoying long flowering period from this variety.
