    There is so much variability with the Mimi Palmer x insignis crossing. I have three plants here like these and no two plants are exactly alike - one is leopard spotted, the other is dark (red-black) as dark can be, while the third comes out slightly orange-yellow with a multicolored lip.

    One thing common though to all of them is that they are all heavily perfumed and have medium sized flowers.

    Yes Jojo, if there are others that involves this cross I'd be interested to have them....
    the flowers are beautiful and the fragrance is awesome.... not to mention that it flowers
    every 3-4....

    Hey Randy, just re-read the title of your post, I should have asked if Vanda minded you taking pics of her bloomers.
