    Default Vanda Mimi Palmer 'Teo Boon Hian'

    First time this has bloomed for me and I'm quite pleased. Was never a fan of brown or mahogany colored blooms, but this has changed my mind. It's very fragrant, but hard to describe, a combination of hyacinth, soap, and a bit of chocolate, sounds bad but smells good.Name:  mimi 2 (Copy).jpg

    'Teo Boon Hian' is the best of the Mimi Palmers. It was won several awards. Yours does not disappoint. Just outstanding, Ed. The color, form and size are what makes this one so desirable.
