    Default Vasco Tham Yuen Hae x Vasco Broga Bluebell

    I have posted pictures of this plant before but this time it has fifteen blooms. I mentioned how hard it was to try to capture the colour or even to describe it. Recently Naoki posted pictures of his Ascda Blue Tahourdine ]Bronze Grape' and the varietal name comes closest to describing the colour of this Vascostylis ..... 'bronze' overlaid on a purple-blue background, One can see the blue colour on the back of the flowers. It is really difficult to capture the colour as it changes according to the intensity and the direction of the light. This is the closest to the actual colour.

    WOW That's gorgeous, Yew.

    I feel your pain not being able to capture the 'right' color of the flower.

    I have this cross but it has yet to bloom. I can only hope that it is as nice as yours.
    I have a couple of Vasco Tham Yuen Hae crosses. It seems to leave its print with that weird bronze grape color on its progeny. They seem to change color depending on the angle and the direction of light.
    Love the plant, Yew Sung.
