Angraecum leonis - delicate and fragrant flower with a long nectary

 Angraecum leonis
     Native to Madagascar and the Comoro Islands, these were “discovered” and first described by collectors in 1885. Its white flowers are long lasting, and possess an exquisite evening and nighttime fragrance. The plant has an interesting fan-like form all on its own. They are quite easy to grow and bloom under intermediate light levels. Even large specimen plants are of moderate size—great for those of us running out of space for our orchid collecting!!! This is a lovely addition to an orchid collection.
