A sub­tle scent

Country Living (UK) - - Cl Promotion -

Pha­laenop­sis or moth orchids are known and loved for their ex­otic and long-last­ing flow­ers, and now Hamp­shire-based nurs­ery Dou­ble H has de­vel­oped three va­ri­eties that have a del­i­cate scent. ‘Dif­fu­sion’ (pink/pur­ple), ‘New Life’ (white/ pink) and ‘Sunny Smell’ (yel­low/dark pink, above) have dainty blooms with a light, sweet nec­tar per­fume that seems to be most no­tice­able first thing in the morn­ing. Look out for them in Marks & Spencer and Waitrose for about £15. For tips on grow­ing them, see love­orchids.co.uk.
