Rangaeris amaniensis ‘July’ - cloud of fragrant white flowers, each with a long nectary

 Rangaeris amaniensis ‘July’
     This choice plant used to be called Angraecum amaniensis. It’s part of that wonderful group of plants native to Africa and Madagascar. When they’re in bloom, it’s like a cloud of fragrant white flowers. We’ve found these to be quite tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, relatively pest-free, and very reliable bloomers. We began selling these by accident, really. One day we went to the greenhouse and found our specimen plant on the ground. It had become so large that it’s plaque, wire and all, let loose. We all of a sudden had saleable plants! Though we keep ours on plaques, we’ve potted several for customers growing in windows with favorable results.
