    Red face Den. Blue Twinkle "Carmela"

    I was so excited to find this mericlone at my local big box store, that I broke the spike getting it out of the car. Small quarter size blooms (32), on a 18 " spike. I had never seen this before. Violet/purple and white with twisted petals. A slight sweet fragrance. I'm sure am getting clumsy. Sorry for the lousy pic.

    Very nice colour! I've always liked the look of these antelope flowered dendrobiums.

    I have a terrible habit of doing the same thing Carol, when ive purchased a plant in full spike! Sometimes even as soon as leaving the shop and loading the car, unloading and even placing in situ. If I could turn my leg 180 c I would kick myself.....and hard! Beautiful antelope dend. , even in the vase.

    Lovely, the antelope dendrobiums come in so many different colors, earlier it was mostly yellows and browns.

    Lovely cute dendrobes. I notice at our local shows these 'minis' are getting very popular.
