1 Orchid – 240 Blooms!

Maureen Wood loves Orchids & has collected them from places like Singapore & Spain. She’s been growing them for years but never before has she seen anything like this!

Orchid with 240 Blooms
This plant, a Cymbidium Orchid, which faithfully flowers every Christmas season has out done it’s self this year. Maureen has counted an amazing 240 flowers on this single plant! Now if she could only remember where she picked up this particular Orchid!

“Visitors to the house have been absolutely amazed” said Maureen. I’m not surprised, I know I have never seen an orchid with that many blooms at one time! This orchid has 16 stems, some of those stems have up to 15 blooms on them, well above the average of about 10 blooms per stem.

Maureen grows her Orchids in a polytunnel, but when they bloom they are moved into the house. Because she has many different types of Orchids that bloom at different times her house is always filled with colour from these exotic plants.

About Lesley Lowry

I love flowers! I enjoy growing them, learning about them and I love creating bouquets of freshly cut flowers. In our climate where it's winter most of the time, the growing season is way too short, so I have started this blog to get my fix all winter! I encourage you to post regularly on this blog, especially if you're lucky enough to live in a warm climate and can grow flowers all year long. I intend to post a lot of interesting facts and fun stuff about flowers, as well as info on many varieties of flowers.
