    Default Marriottara Everything Nice 'First Love'

    I am not going to get used to these name changes I have it as a Blc in my inventory. It is a cross of Rhynchosophrocattleya (Blc) Mem. Helen Brown x B. perrinii. It was registered by Stewart, Inc in 1981. Has a spicy fragrance. Fortunately it takes after it's B. perrinii parent for Mem. Helen Brown is a very large plant.

    I didn't take a measurement of the flower but it is about 4" on droopy 7" Brassavola-like growths. I think I will be moving this one to basket culture.

    Ron, everytime you post a bloom, it ends up to be a new add to my wish list. Sigh...

    I love the color of the petals.
    It is a very refreshing "mango" color

    Ron, you seem to have a new orchid in bloom almost every day. How big is that collection of yours? and your greenhouse? lol.
