    An exceptional clone of a very rewarding Mexican species. It is a west coast plant and gets the traditional dry winter, wet summer. It grows very well in my cold house (which gets warm summer days). I took these images last year at a time I wasn't posting much here.

    Beautiful, Marni! I've started growing a few Barkerias in the last year. Mexico seems to have many wonderful though underappreciated orchid species.
