Any Gardener has the capabilities to grow Orchids

 
Large Purple Cattleya Orchid Corsage

Large Purple Cattleya Orchid Corsage

Clarksville, TN – When I was growing up, I believed that the most glamorous corsage any woman could receive was either a huge purple or white Cattleya orchid. My dad believed that too and usually presented both my grandmothers and my mother with either this type of showy bloom or a couple of Cymbidium orchids for most special occasions.

When I lived in College Park, Maryland, I visited Kensington Orchids just off the Beltway outside of Washington, D. C., and bought my first Cattleya orchid plant. When I lived in Belmont, Massachusetts, I was fortunate to belong to the Massachusetts Orchid Society and to get to know Dick Peterson, then editor of the American Orchid Society Bulletin. When I moved to Charlottesville, Virginia, I was one of the founding members of the Charlottesville Orchid Society and served as its first president.
