    Default Christensonia vietnamica x Rhy coelestis

    Just bought this recently.I was attracted by the greenish-yellow colour of the petals and sepals and that beautiful purple lip. The flowers have good form and substance, plus it's an unusual primary hybrid using Christensonia vietnamica.

    A Mardi Gras colored orchid! I love it, Yew. Mardi Gras is celebrated in New Orleans ( city of my birth ) every year in very early Spring/late Winter. Mardi Gras colors are: Green, gold and purple. Betty

    Thanks Geoff for the name. Very interesting - Kedah is my home state, but the plant is imported from Thailand. The main fault with the blooms is that the flowers are presented in a 'chins down' position on the spike. You can see that in the pictures. I just feel like shouting 'Chins Up' at them. But I like the colour of the blooms which has a neon-like quality to it.

    Thanks Betty. I love to see pictures and film clips of Mardi Gras and especially the jazz bands.
