Wow, that is a beauty, love the vivid red!

I couldn't find the cultivar 'Grizzly' in our database so I submitted a proposal to add it.

Whoa, great pic of Grizzly Ron.
I see it was registered in 2000 so relatively new...to Australia.
I'm hoping for a bloom next season. If it ever opens in time for the show...it wins!
Here's a huge night bloomer out tonight. Opens before dusk...you'd like that Carol!

Oh good! We have someone that can keep us informed on registration. Is this anything universal, like Kew is for orchids? So many people dabble in hybrids, but don't pay the fees to register...just give them a name. There are probably hundred of crosses out there with as many names for each.

Yes Ron it sure has been a strange epi season.
Here's a very late one that bloomed earlier as well.
