Beautiful. Bravo !
It seems that there is a light yellow in the lip ?
I'm sorry but colors should be more accurate without sun on the flowers, even if the sky is... so blue...
Just gorgeous. I must say the species still top the hybrids in my book. Wonderful job. Nice and full. Are you getting any scent from them?
Mauro thinks that it is not a typical lueddemanniana : the shape of the lip is unusual, the white streaks of the lip are not thick enough, the yellow "eyes" of the lip are not typical. The column seems to be strongly influenced by lueddemanniana but is not typical.
Lueddemanniana has 2 little hooks at the end of the column. To see them, you need a photo like this one : Here.
Another column photo :
And for the yellow eyes and the large white streaks :
I asked Mauro tonight (in France) if he has an idea of the ID. I'm waiting...
Have you looked at the column ? Small hooks are very easy to see... more difficult to photograph.
