Shiver Me Red
by Colleen Rochette
Sizzling hot. Miss Burr is certainly a sight for sore eyes! This shapely, demure orchid has a hip shake and a blossom bosom that catches more than well-mannered gaze.
Burrageara Nelly Isler ‘Swiss Beauty’ is deeply divine. Although her charming physique is a tangled combination of 4 different genera of orchids, this girl is easy going and easy growing. Cochlioda, Miltonia, Odontoglossum and Oncidium, eat your hearts out!
Although Miss Burr is happily rooted and happily blooming, she will need to be re-potted once the the curtain closes upon her sumptuous show. For now, her little plastic pot has been tucked inside of a handmade vessel. She does have quite a few new pseudobulbs developing at similar rates, so I am hoping that she will bloom again shortly after being re-potted.
