Compiled and illustrated by a long-time orchid specialist, this pocket guide to the fringed orchids provides a description, general distributional information, time of flowering, and habitat requirements for each species as well as a complete list of hybrids and the many different growth and color forms that can make identifying orchids so challenging.
