Strikingly Miniature

Eulophia paniculata. This little orchid gives huge sprays of tiny half-inch flowers that seem really unobtrusive until you get up close and notice that they are wonderful, gaudy little creatings full of candy stripes and grape colored veining. Wow. Better yet, they grow outdoors here. This one is growing on my retaining wall in the front yard.
