    Thanks, Shann! I lost my mind for one like it at the nursery! She was gorgeous and hudge ( and way too expensive). So they told me I only need to wait about 9-10 years and mine will be like that. LOL

    Beautiful!

    Yes Vanda Robert Delight comes in several varieties ranging from bright fuschia to red-maroon to a dark, deep purple, almost black (name of that variety is called Blue-Black). Large, flat flowers. They are very active growers and are very floriferous.
