    I posted the wrong picture and then corrected it. I assume the above question was regarding the original picture which was a George King 'Southern Cross'

    Really a cool one
    Not wild about spotted orchids but really like this one and have it. It is a great bloomer.

    I have seen this same cross and I think they are labeling ALL Hawaiian Leopard as "Mei-Ling". I know the guy who made the cross and will ask him next meeting. Although "Mei-Ling" has an AM of 80 points some clones are as good or better than it, so clearing this up may allow these other 'clones' to be awarded.
