Hi Sandy,

You asked about Foxfire.  It is a dark dwarf, stature medium (Marilyn Holt
ranks it as "miniature," meaning "Planted in a 3½ inch pot these plants will
not exceed five inches in height"), with fairly large single flowers of pale
silvery orchid.  The flower has a small white center (and a white stigma as I
recall); on opening the white center has a slight greenish cast.  Protected
from ultraviolet light, it holds these delicate colors well.  The leaves are
green with a not very prominent darker green zone under some lighting

ps. -- can there be two "Dulcies"?  In my data there is an entry, probably
copied from the second Harold Bagust book, of "Dulcie" as a double salmon.  Did
I mess up?
