This is book 9 of the "Nero Wolfe" series.
This note contains spoilers for the book.
Two not-very-connected stories, though both do involve black orchids. In the first, Wolfe solves a mystery to get the three plants that his rival has bred. In the second, as a minor detail he sends some to a funeral.
