Dory's Gesneriads, Orchids and Perennials


Updated 06/26/07!
I have a passion for things that grow and flourish within all that we see. To sow is seed is to start a new life, to let it blossom is a love of life and natures artistry. Our true gift in this existance that we share with others unknowingly. With each new flower blooming a little more color is added to our realm.

Rocks do not recommend the land to the tiller of the soil, but they recommend it to those who reap a harvest of another sort - the artist, the poet, the walker, the student, the lover of all primative open air things

John Burroughs 1837-1921


Occasionally, I have orchids and seedlings for auction at Ebay.
One of my goals is to have a photograph of each flower on this site. I dont want to use others pictures here., I want only my own- tho I do have one or two here that I didnt take but they will be replaced next flowering. Its going to be take time but for me its worth it and an on going project. I am forever photographing the blooms but dropping the film off for developing is another story. So your patience would be appreciatted. So if you see * next to a photo , know that I didn't take the photo. Also I have changed some of this site and used all the common names, I had too many who didnt know the latin names email me...

I am searching for the following plants and looking to trade or purchase for desired plants listed:

Hosta Blue Mouse Ears

Episcia Adams Rib

Episcia Spooky

Daylily Halloween Masquerade

Orchids are beautiful plants that have earned a bad reputation of being difficult to raise and care for, this is not true at all. Orchids are very hardy plants that when their requirements are met, can out live our great grandchildren.
This is a list of all the orchids who share my home and my life. Alot of these listed are also my stud plants. If you are interested in purchasing, email me since alot are available.

***Orchids; species, hybrids and intergenics***(this list is in process of being redone, many have sold and a couple have died.
