Orchid Insanity - Hwra Lava Burst Pacific Sunrise
The orchid world and purebred dog world have many, many parallels. Both worlds have obsessive devotees, fun and funny names, long and complicated pedigrees, prizes big and small, beautiful specimens, outrageous prices, lots of politics, and of course, a superabundance of know-it-alls. What these two spheres don't have in common are mutts. Mutts, as loveable as they are, have little to no standing in the American Kennel Club (est. 1884) purebred world, although in these less restrained latter days there might be a few competitive events in which the AKC grudgingly allows dogs of 'undocumented' ancestry to participate. In the orchid world, however, mutts abound and are accepted, respected, and even cherished.

The variety we're offering here is called 'Pac...

If I did not know most of the main players I would have thought the author had a vivid and twisted imagination..”—Paul Martin Brown, author of Wild Orchids of Florida“A fascinating true story of obsession, greed, and lust for the unobtainable. Reminds me a great deal of The Maltese Falcon. This rare flower is definitely the stuff that dreams are made of.”—Ace Atkins, author of Devil's Garden and Infamous“Pittman has captured the extreme competition, unique characters, and general insanity that often typify the orchid world. The Scent of Scandal exemplifies how passion and profit can overrule common sense and the law.”—Scott Steward, former associate editor, North American Native Orchid JournalEvery year more than 100,000 people visit Sarasota’s Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, in large part to see its vast orchid collection, one of the most magnificent in the world. But the most famous orchid in Selby’s history—the one hailed as the most significant find in a century—isn't on display. It's the one that led to search warrants, a grand jury investigation, and headlines around the country. Discovered in Peru in 2002, the Phragmipedium kovachii quickly became the most sought-after...
