American Orchid Society - Director of Education Note:
"Elegance" was inspired by Epidendrum pseudepidendrum, one of the most striking and perhaps finest species in the genus. Native
to Costa Rica and Panama, this warm growing species can reach up to 5 feet tall. Flowering can occur at any time of the year however
summer-fall is the peak season. The astonishing, butterfly pollinated, long-lasting flowers have apple-green sepals and petals, and a
waxy orange lip that feels like molded plastic.
