  • Posted by Joy (Kalama, Wa. - Zone 8b) on Dec 3, 2011 6:34 AM concerning plant:
    Huge, orchid lavender with a light yellow starburst throat adds to an overall exotic look. Petals twist lightly and gently recurve. Fragrant and reblooms. Diamond dusted.
    A spidery variant in soft orchid-lilac. Strap segments. The orchid flowers have a soft lemon-yellow eyezone that extends through a petal midrib to the ends of the flowers. Healthy and gives good increase, this plant is delicately showy.
