Epi­den­drum rad­i­cans

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

Cru­ci­fix orchid is a ter­res­trial from cen­tral Amer­ica. They come in a range of colours and sizes, and all have an in­cred­i­bly long flow­er­ing pe­riod – for much of the year in the frost-free re­gions where they grow eas­ily if you pro­vide plenty of sun and a mounded soil rich in bark and grit for their aerial roots to perch on. They look great com­bined with lush fo­liage of phormi­ums, aloes and cy­cads. (Plantres­cue.co.nz)
