    Hello, Dmcgee. The name you have for your cymbidium is correct and should be written like this:

    Cymbidium Via Ireland (Cymbidium King Arthur x Cymbidium Via Spring Snow)

    Welcome to OrchidTalk.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Looking at what you find on your tag I suspect the correct way to write it would be: Cym. (Via Ireland 'Delightful' x La Costa Elf 'White Princess')

    It would be an unregistered cross between these 2 Cyms. (I check the registry for you and this cross has not been registered but both parents have)

    Is it green with a pink spotted lip? Was Winter Mist anywhere on the tag? see this post: http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...-bloomers.html

    and Welcome to the Forum!

    I agree with Ron. I have a few of these cymbidiums and it is a "grocery variety" hybrid that is not officially registered (as far as I know).
    It is one of my favorites though. Very vigorous grower and large bloomer.

    FYI....I received a response stating that this cross was registered 1/30/09 under the name....Cym. Via Irish Elf by Gallup & Stribling. Thanks to all for your input...
