    Default Aer houlletiana x Aer flabellata

    Another recent buy. I had expected a lot from this cross, but apart from the lip I think the blooms are a bit drab. However, I like the spicy fragrance of the blooms.

    I agree the orchid is drab. Don't even care for the lip. The only thing I can suggest is that you send it to me and I will dispose of it for you. LOL --- Seriously, I love it. I love the color and form. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    T'would be nicer if the color was a bit brighter, true, but still quite nice. I like the freckling.

    If this is a bit drab, I would love to see your idea of flamboyant Yew! AL
