A photo of a multi-flowered plant, along with additional commentary, can be seen by clicking here. The blue color on the lip in this photo is perhaps a bit darker than in real life. The flower shown here appears to be closer to the color and pattern most often seen, although there is considerable variability in the species. Another photo of a whole plant, illustrating the quilted foliage, can be seen here.
