Potted Purple Mini Phalaenopsis
No Green Thumb Required. Until you touch its silken petals and leaves, your eyes will swear this graceful Potted Purple Mini Phalaenopsis, or moth orchid, is the real thing. And unlike the living blooms of our Smithsonian Orchid Collection, this one will look stunningly beautiful 365 days a year. Glazed ceramic planter. 18"h.
Did you know there are twice as many species of orchids as birds? Or that the 8,000 specimens in our Smithsonian Orchid Collection include species from Africa, Asia, and Australia as well as from the Americas? Whether or not you can attend our 18th Annual Orchid Exhibition (this year showcasing Orchids of Latin America, through April 21, 2013), the décor, jewelry and gifts offered let you enjoy these exotic beauties and their fragrance in your home.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
