    Default Hybrids of Vanda denisoniana

    The writings on the label is almost fully faded away but something like "Danny Gold" (I think) is still readable. I think the broad white lip is quite interesting.

    Danny Gold is an Ascda - with Yip Sum Wah as one parent ( and all the ones I have seen are a solid dark orange colour, typical Ascda shape - small lip) x Ascda Madame Kenny. The latter I don't know , but disover it is Yip Sum Wah again, crossed with Vanda Boonchoke. V denisoniana is in there somewhere ( one of the parents of Boonchoke) . The way something from way back can reappear is very surprising , unless you regularly study the genealogy of your hybrids - then it appears niornmal , if still surprising. But the size of the lip is still quite remarkable - exceeds that of any densioniana I can recall.

    Thanks for the descriptions. I would have never thought it has Ascda blood in it. Thanks again Geoff. Really appreciate it.

    Beautiful, Mazlan. Love the bold spots and the contrasting lip. Does remind one of denisoniana somewhere in its parentage.
