    Very soft colors and gorgeous blooms. But I think this is not intermedia but a hybrid, the lip is very different here.

    That may well be, as I bought it at a Minnesota orchid society sale over 30 yrs. ago. Whatever it is, it's very vigorous, and I've shared divisions with many people. It does bloom sevaral times a year...Betty
