This plant was originally sold years ago (by a now closed nursery called Sandown Exotics in Melbourne) with a tentative ID of Iris-Like Cymbidium (Cymbidium iridioides), but Melbourne Cymbidium species grower Stephen Early purchased it and selfed it, confirming it is a hybrid. Divisions of the plant are still in circulation today (Stephen Early himself has distributed pieces as well), sometimes with the original, incorrect iridioides label.
