A Rainbow of Color
Tolumnia Rainbow. The genus Tolumnia is closely related to and relatively recently split off from the genus Oncidium. They are native to the Carribean islands and tend to live in humid but semi-arid areas near the ocean. The grow on low shrubs where they receive nightly mist in lieu of rain. Tolumnia hybrids come in a host of colors, particularly in yellows, reds, orange and brown. A few are nearly black.
