    Oh wow! You lucky duck...i'm waiting for mine to bud out. It's in sheath for now, yours is much whiter than mine. Mine has a nice pink hue to the petals. I like the white form alot, would this be "semi alba"??

    I think the lip on yours is bluer than mine and more regular in shape.

    Coerulea is used to describe the blue forms. I don't think it would also be considered semi alba.
