I think you're right. Very interesting link too, thanks.

I think that this is the Blue Mystique Phal. (http://www.homesteadgardens.com/departme...) The flowers are natural, but their colour is not.

I've also moved this from Other to Plants category and switched it into the Flowers of North America instead of Europe.

I was thinking that too Karen. Most of the naturally occurring blue orchids I believe are in Australia (Thelymitra).

I believe that there are naturally occurring blue orchids but most that are commercially available have been dyed. I suspect that is the case here.

Are these real flowers? I've never seen Phalaenopsis orchids in this color before.
