Dendrobium Biggibum

                 Dendrobium Biggibum 

 

Back in 1989 when my sister was visiting from W.A. I took her to an Orchid Show, and she gifted me with my first Cooktown Orchid, the floral emblem of Queensland since the 1890s.

It loves to bloom just before Easter, and this is part of the display in my back “garden” at the present time.

There are eight sprays of blossom on this clump of plants, and the  pot at the other end of the garden is showing

NOTHING!

  1. flowers are beautiful!

  2. I have a dendrobium but it’s not the large flower variety you have. This is Gorgeous. Several in bloom would be such a delight to the eyes.

  3. This is a gorgeous orchid, Maureen. Did the other one ever blossom?
