Description
Revered by avid orchid collectors for its star-shaped flowers, Huntleya is a small group of orchids found mostly on the ground in high-moisture "cloud forest" regions. Besides their striking colors—from deep blue to waxy red, royal purple to almost black—flowers of this group are known for their distinctive shapes, patterns, and textures. Yet their identification has been confused since they were first described in the mid-19th century; only with recent DNA studies has it become possible to sort out the taxonomic problems and identify the characteristics that set these species apart. In this beautifully photographed study of Huntleya, American Orchid Society judge Patricia Harding presents evidence from the scientific literature, other growers, and her own experience to enable orchidists to identify their plants and grow them successfully.
