Wild Banana Orchid

Myrmecophila thomsoniana
One of 26 native Orchid species to Cayman, the Banana Orchid is the National Flower of the Cayman Islands. Blooming during April and May, their banana shaped bulbs turn a bright, cheerful yellow, earning them their name. They grow in harmony with their host trees, absorbing nutrients from the air and water while enriching the soil around them. This warm, woodsy floral musk speaks of the great outdoors, a sensual sense of mystery and its native island home.
