So pretty!

Dracula robledorum. Primary hybrid orchid

The orchid genus Dracula, abbreviated as Drac in horticultural trade, consists of 118 species. The strange name Dracula,
literally means “little dragon”, referring to the strange aspect of the two long spurs of the sepals.They were once included in the genus Masdevallia, but became a separate genus in 1978. This genus has some of the more bizarre and well-known species of the subtribe Pleurothallidinae.
