Blooms to look for in the Conservatory

DSC03754Sweet smelling, pink blooms are just opening up on the Tropical Rose Hydrangea Tree (Dombeya x Seminole).  This bloom fists right in with the Candyland Display currently featured.

Also just beginning to open up is the orchid Angraecum sesquipedale with common names of Darwin’s Orchid, Christmas Orchid, and Star of Bethlehem Orchid.  This bloom is notable for the spur holding the nectar which can be 10-16 inches long.  You will see in the picture that the spur is unfolding before the petals.Darwin Orchid

Both of these plants can be seen at the Miller Nature Preserve Conservatory in Avon.  The conservatory is open 10am – 6pm and has a $2 admission fee.
