RE: Orchids

I actually found a tag in the orchid I repotted yesterday-  the tag claims
it is (moyra easton x via coyote x via mar vista) 'Sparkle'.  I have no idea
if this is correct or not.  For that matter I'm not actually sure what all
this means- other than it's name is Sparkle!

I have a cattleya hybrid that has just finished blooming, ditto for the
phalaenopsis (I am obviously not an orchid fanatic). I have always
wanted to try the hardy terrestrials in my garden, but don't want to
perform major modifications on the environment. Surely, given the size
of the Orchidaceae family, there must be a member or two that like the
living conditions in west central IL????
