    Not as large as some of the forms of Gordon Dillon - e.g. Garnet Beauty which makes 15 cm flowers for me, a mere 11 cm , but such a glorious clear colouring. Not the best flowering either, maybe a seven, but it will look well as part of a group maybe, at my OS show on Saturday.
    I reckon this is about the 7th generation of breeding, to produce this, but even so it is 90% V.coerulea and sanderiana.

    I loved this one, even if it has less no of flowers, they are held very nicely and the form is nice.

    Love this orchid bloom. Look at the cool tesselations in the closeup photo.

    Cheers,
