    Default Slc Hazel Boyd "Apricot Glow"

    A good old hybrid. first registerd 1975. Time was , when every show had lots of Hazel Boyds - there are other clones. Not so often seen nowadays, which is no doubt why some business-savvy nursery on the far side of the pond ( from where I'm sitting ) decided to meristem it again.
    Hence a young seedling, flowering for the first time.
    Easily makes big pans full. I hope I can live up to those brave words !
    Not large - at least on this firsts flowering, the four flowers are 6 cm natural spread. memory tells me when I had one 20-30 years ago, they were a bit bigger p- perhaps not first flowering plants then.
    Probably not an Slc now, just a C - ....

    Geoff,

    That is really beautiful. I did a quick search online and found two sites selling them on this side of the pond.

    I love Hazel Boyd. One of the very first orchids I grew was the 'Sunset' clone. I eventually re-homed it because it was getting too big for my conditions at the time, but still miss it.
