Masdevallia hirtzii

Masdevallia hirtzii with its a colorful and abundant flowers always provides a a bit of color in the middle of the winter.  It always produces its flowers for me from November to January and though the individual flowers only last a few weeks, it continues to produce them over that three month period, but then is done blooming for the year, too.  It belongs to the Saltatrices group and the characteristics of this group are evident in the photos, tubular flowers and a "belly' at the base of the flower tube.
