More Orchids from Foster Botanical Garden

I’ve already sung the praises of┬áHonolulu’s Foster Botanical Garden on this blog. In addition to posts about Foster’s orchids, including the biggest orchid in the world, and giant Grammatophyllums, here’s another post with more of Dave’s great photos. For readers who are already feeling winter’s chill, I hope these tropical beauties in sunny Hawaii will inspire warm thoughts.

These warm growing orchids come in a huge variety of bright colors and fantastic shapes. Many have sweet scents, but unfortunately, no photo can convey those.

Whether it’s Leopard Orchids with spots like a jungle cat, or Philippine Ground Orchids with vibrant hues, these floral jewels are the embodiment of tropical beauty. It’s always worth a visit to Foster Botanical Garden, even if it’s only a virtual one.
