Well the times have changed and now they are beloved as the group above. I purchased some Oncidiums from someone who was moving and downsizing this spring. They were not in flower at the time. Now in August they both bloomed. Their cascading flowers are simply spectacular.
The above and below photographs are the more unusual chocolate orchid, also known as Sharry Baby Oncidium. To me their scent is very mild, so mild I do not detect a chocolate scent. However, the blooms are breathtaking enough for me even without the added scent.
This Oncidium below is the more common of the two, this yellow flowering species is spectacular due to the brilliance of the profuse yellow blossoms.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great summer. Enjoy the other posts here and I look forward to seeing you on social media sites as well.
