Dendrobium violaceum

Dendrobium violaceum
This orchid species is from Papua New Guinea and belongs to the Oxyglossum group of Dendrobiums. The species varies greatly in size, with this plant 8-10 inches tall and another plant we own only about 2 inches tall. These flower opened a bright pink and gradually faded to the more muted shades shown here. They have ample time to do that since the flowers last for many months.
