While strolling around Chicago’s Lincoln Park Conservatory this past weekend, we came across this never before seen by me orchid. It was tagged as genus – Bulbophyllum and species – Bulbophyllum gracillimum (Rolfe). A very knowledgeable volunteer informed me that it’s common and much easier name to remember is a wispy umbrella orchid. It is a bunch of miniature orchids forming an amazing larger and spidery looking blossom. Interesting looking, isn’t it? I’ll be on the lookout for more of these for sure.
