A link to an article I wrote on Dave's Garden about orchids which are just as attractive for their foliage as for their flowers.

You are so right on. I was recently interested in orchids that have a fragrance but I haven't had a chance to find any.

Are there any with fragrance, interesting foliage, and flowers? Maybe I could save some space. LOL.
