    Default Ascda Yeo Bee Beck

    Last year this was the most floriferous "vanda" I have ever had in terms of flowers on the plant ; not so many this year although it will probably be 20 or 21 when all th buds are open. But bigger flowers this year ; last year the largest was about 6cm. This year its nearer 8. I expect that the top flowers when open will be a bit less. Unusual colouring and patterning for an Ascda ( in my collection at least). Makes me think of the black-current ice-cream I tried to make once...

    Very rich color and patterns on these blooms and the extra size certainly doesn't hurt. AL

    Very nice Geoff. Flower this one myself this year but not this ones standard, plant too small.

    BTW. Ascda Yeo Geck Bee is the name. ( 'Lavender Lady' )

    The pattern and color is more vanda-like than I usually see on an Asco. Quite nice.
