My most favourite flowers are Phalaenopsis orchids, aka Moth orchids. I'm addicted to them. I guess if I lived in a tropical country I could call them full time garden flowers, but I don't so I can't. Mine live in containers in my outdoor container garden for about 8 months of the year and then they have to come inside for the cold winter months. But that's okay too because they are all in bloom during the winter months as well so it's like bringing summer indoors for the winter. I love the many hybrids and colours of phals, and I especially love that the flower spikes on them all stay in bloom for 5 to 6 months before dropping their flowers and starting brand new flower spikes again. Mine all set new spikes twice a year so it's like having a perpetual tropical flower garden year round.
