It’s Spring and the garden is blooming.
So many flowers are opening it was hard to choose one to put on my desktop.
And, in fact, I couldn’t choose just one.
Here’s my desktop for this month.
This orchid is native to eastern Australia, most particularly south-east Queensland (where I am) and north-eastern New South Wales – in fact, it’s endemic in these regions.
Dendrobium kingianum is usually a lithophyte that grows on rocks, hence its common name – Pink Rock Orchid – but can sometimes be found as an epiphyte growing on another living plant – but it is not parasitic in nature.
Mine is growing in a small plastic pot attached to my fence and is a delightful addition to my verticle garden.
This year, it has 20 racemes (flower clusters) one contains only two flowers, but all the others have at least 15 or more. It looks amazing and, when it stops raining, I’ll take more photos to share.
