This is a cross between Vanda Nok, and Ascda curvifolium in the awarded form "Mangkud". An interesting dusky colour - which I think is quite well shown in the pic.
Largest flower 2 inches - those at the top are smaller but still growing , and there is still a bud or two to open ; a count of 14 eventually.
I like these smoky mysterious colours, and we get so many wonderful ones in the orchids, the flowers outside in the garden are such simple creatures in comparison.
These really have a depth to their colors. Just beautiful!
That is my favorite shade of purple! <---that font color is named "darkorchid", curiously enough.
Good form and colour.
Very pretty. I like the color.
Gorgeous ! I like the small yellow tips on the lip sides, they nicely contrast the blue flower.
Purple passion! A beauty. Not only do I love the shade, I really like the pattern in the bloom as well. Excellent. Thank you for sharing it with us.
You can see the orange undertones Asctm curvifolium has contributed.
