    Probably about 2 1/2 inches maybe a little more. I have two of these. This is the better with the little flecks of blue on the tips of the petals, sepals and dorsal. But they are a little floppy and have to be staked.

    Very pretty! I love orchids that bloom often. Is there any fragrance on this one?

    Me too, Connie. Though not strange or unusual (reg by Oscar Kirch in 1979), I have a Rhynchorides Springtime - Aer lawrenceae x Rhy gigantea - that is in spike and should be blooming in a fortnight or so. I got it last year but I've never seen the flowers and I could only find 2 pictures in Google. which is quite strange as this is a comparatively 'old' cross.
