Burgundy Orchid - Denver Botanical Gardens

January 20, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Hi Everyone,

I have been having some fun going to the Denver Botanical Gardens this month.  They are having an orchid show from now through February 20, 2017.  I took this photo on my first trip to the orchid show.  I really like the stone background.  It makes the orchids "pop".  I will be going to take more photos of the orchids at the show so stay tuned.

Have a GREAT weekend...Diane

Orchids are perennials herbs that are easily distinguished from other plants, as they share some very evident shared derived characteristics, or apomorphies. Among these are: bilateral symmetry of the flower, many resupinate flowers, a nearly always highly modified petal, fused stamens ad carpels, and extremely small seeds.
