Stunning exotic botanical from Louis van Houtte's, Flore des Serres et des Jardins de l'Europe (Flowers of the Greenhouses and Gardens of Europe). Van Houtte was a Belgian horticulturist whom at the height of European orchid mania in 1845 despatched plant collectors to the Americas to search for orchids and other exotic plants. Van Houtte produced plants for European conservatories and with the help of Eduard Ortgies cultivated the first Victoria Lily on the Continent. By the 1870s van Houtte's nursery was flourishing, covering 14 hectares and comprising 50 greenhouses.
