Small plant 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterPink flowersWhite, off-white flowersBlue, lavender, purple flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Rhynchostylis sp. (Foxtail Orchid) is a small, eye-catching plan. It is native to India, China, Malaysia, and Indonesia. This orchid is a charming addition to any garden with its distinctively textured, upright flower spikes and produces an array of vibrant colors throughout the year, including pink, white and off-white, blue, lavender, and purple flowers. The fragrant blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

These orchids are easy to care for, as long as they are planted in the correct location and given the right amount of water. To ensure proper care, it is recommended to choose well-drained orchid mix substrate and a container with adequate drainage holes. Place the container in an area that receives bright indirect sunlight, either outdoors or indoors. Keep the plant moist, but not soggy, during the growing season. Water heavily during the growing season and reduce watering during the winter months. Feed the plant with a balanced fertilizer.

Rhynchostylis sp. is suitable for growing in USDA Hardiness Zones 9-11. In cold regions, it is best to keep the Foxtail Orchid as a potted plant and bring it indoors during the winter months. For optimal growth, move the potted plant to a sunny spot near a window. Alternatively, you can place a grow light nearby to provide extra light. Water sparingly during the winter, allowing the soil to partially dry out between waterings. Fertilize the orchid monthly to provide essential nutrients.

With the right care, this beautiful and exotic orchid will bring a unique and vibrant touch to your garden.

The Rose is the most popular garden flower. Highly valued for its form, fragrance and endless variety of color. Tremendous progress has been made in raising new varieties by crossbreeding and selection. New types have arisen; the season of blooming has been prolonged to such an extent that many modern varieties (including climbers) bloom intermittently or in some instances continuously throughout the summer and autumn months. Only a severe frost puts an end to their blooming season. The species of wild Roses are classed under Rosa and a few hybrids that resemble wild kinds, but for garden purposes, the remaining types are grouped in various ways: according to their habits of growth; according to their ancestry; according to the manner in which they are grafted, budded or trained; and in a number of other ways. These groups are not always clear. They often overlap, but are generally convenient and practicable. It's important that the person interested in Roses be familiar with the different types of Roses even though he may not be able, at sight, to place any given Rose in a specific category. The basic of the Rose classes are: Hybrid Teas, Hybrid Perpetuals, Floribunda Roses, Polyanthas, Hybrid Sweetbriers, Miniature Roses, China Roses (Rosa chinensis semperflorens), French Roses (Rosa gallica), Damask Rose, Moss Rose, Shrub Roses, Rugosa Roses, etc. Roses need special care and diligence in the spring and early summer in fighting pests. The most important thing is having deep and rich soil. By digging deeply, adding manure and good loamy soil, Roses of high standard may be grown in any sunny garden. Whether the soil is light or heavy, deep digging is necessary. This consists of breaking up the subsoil or underlayer and replacing the top layer. Light sandy soil needs an addition of fibrous rooted turf that has been stacked for a year or two, with layers of farmyard manure between. Compost is also good. Generous amounts of rotted cow or horse manure is recommended. See Roses Page
