365 days of orchids – day 157 – Masdevallia coccinea

This extraordinary masdevallia produces masses of large brightly coloured flowers in a range of colours including white, yellow, red and pink. It comes from Colombia and Peru where it grows in cool wet forest up to 3000m altitude.

Its long flower spikes hold the flowers well clear of the leaves and it is humming bird pollinated.
