Phaius tankervilleae
'Rabin's Raven' AM/AOS

Commonly known as "The Nun Orchid", Phaius tankervilleae is a large plant that is often used as a landscape plant in frost-free climates. The large, plicate leaves make for an attractive plant even whe not in bloom. Inflorescences can reach four feet and carry as many as twenty four-inch or larger flowers. After flowering, new plants can be propagated by laying the spent flowering stem on some damp sphagnum moss. The dark-flowered example shown here was exhibited by EFG Orchids at the Miami International Orchid Show in 2000.
