Des Moines Brassavolas
This Brassavola was one of a dozen blooming orchids that greeted us at the Des Moines Botanical and Environmental Center. I think it's a Brassavola, but only a few of the plants had garden markers. I'm a big believer in labeling. So, inside the show room I was frustrated by the rows of unidentified orchids. Maybe there's a special labeling system I'm not aware of. Maybe the tags receeded into the mix. Maybe.
Brassavolas are going to look magical with or without a label and with or without knowing their proper names, but if you live in the Des Moines area I'm sure the botanical center would love your volunteer help.
