Orchids Galore

I love Orchids, especially because of their individuality. There are more than 25,000 verified, natural orchid varieties in the world, with hundreds of new species being discovered annually. In addition to this, there are more than 120,000 registered hybrid orchids, which are crossbreeds of two or more orchids. While orchids are best known for being tropical plants, species of this mysterious flower have been found in every country of the world except Antarctica. These numbers make orchids the largest plant family, according to the American Orchid Society. (According to eHow)

I know I have posted about Millers Nature Preserve previously, but I certainly do love this little place. Every time I go I see new orchids I’ve never seen before.
