    Default Brassolaelia Morning Glory

    (Brassavola nodosa x Laelia purpurata). Pretty large flowers, slightly less than 5 inches in diameter. Easy to grow as with all brassavola hybrids. No fragrance I can detect:

    Very beautiful !! Nice colors and form, but I am doubtful as to whether it is Morning glory or its hybrid. Morning glory shows much more Brassavola nodosa influence with longer curving petals and a longer tube lip. Whereas many morning glory F1s show a similar form. For eg. Morning glory back crossed to purpurata or even a cross with intermedia.
