    Default Blc. Haeleahi Sunbow x Bl. Richard Mueller

    I bought this one last weekend. After reading a couple of threads here, I am wondering why I don't see any purple from Haeleahi Sunbow in this?

    lovely orchid... not sure about the purple colour it's meant to have, but it's very cheery the way it is....

    It will color shift as the bloom ages. It may have more purple then. I love the Mueller crosses because of the spots and color changes. Beautiful bloom.

    It is hard to believe that it will become purple- but of course the richard mueller will cause some sort of color change. It is very striking. I have a haileahi sunbow cross that I can't wait to see.

    While the color has changed that much, my hubby got another shot of the flower for me today. I know it's the same flower, but I really like this picture because of the different angle of light.
