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.
