Jack Spaniard
"The Gongora quinquinervis could astound any observer. It is locally called Jack Spaniard because it calls the fierce wasp to mind. This orchid is not seasonal, but blossoms erratically, being pollinated by bees, descending into one flower after another. Its blooms come in true purple or pale cream and many variations of hue in between."
