Purple Orchid

Purple Orchid

This little beauty was located in the Queen Elizabeth Conservatory on July 20, 2002. It was tucked away amidst other tropical plants but still managed to make its presence known by offering a wonderful combination of colour and contrasts. The solidness of the tree behind the orchid brings out its delicate shape and colour and reminds us of the infinite variety nature uses to express itself. The shape, colour and texture of this bloom are so unique and different from the indigenous flowers of the Vancouver area that it is hard to image that there are thousands of different types of orchids and is perhaps the flower group with the most variations!
