    Default Bc. Makai 'Louise' just opening...



    This is an old favorite, but new to me. I've always loved 'Louise', but this one had caught my eye because of the greenish background that fades to pink. I'm sure it will purple up as it matures, but I will not be around to see it (alas, to the islands I must go)....

    Beautiful blooms and very healthy plants, Maura. Unfortunately mine has gone to orchid heaven. Must find a replacement soon.
