The name of the flower itself is derived from the Greek word oorchis meaning testis. Through their resemblance to human and animal sexual organs, orchids were thought to stimulate lust. In fact, it was long believed that the flowers sprang from the spilled semen of mating animals. For the Victorian Alice OKeefe, who established one of Americas great collections of orchids (before venturing into flora introduction), the delirium leads to environmental disaster. For Frances OKeefe, the hothouse her ancestry built and which she fiercely protects, will once again fill with the flower of legend—and orchidelirium.
