I love receiving plants as gifts for any occassion. I know lots of gardeners would agree with me :)
This is a Christmas gift from my friend, who is also a passionate gardener. The Neoregelia bromeliad is mounted on a tree stump at the base, and the Tillandsias bromeliad is attached to the twig wreath. I am thinking to install a wall-mounted basket on the back porch wall, and then put this combination into the basket. This would add such a nice vertical interest into the garden.
My Birthday is in December. Part of my Birthday and Christmas gifts I received from my family were three Vanda orchids.
Vanda Sanderiana x Vanda Taweesuka
|Vanda Kultawa, 'Blue'|
I also bought some Vandas to give to my friends as gifts. This Vanda Leurcharusmee has maroon-violet flowers with white spots. I know my friends would enjoy them for many years coming.
