    Beautiful grown! Any one who knows the origin despite o f the cross. Brabant is a province here in the Netherlands (I was born there so a little chauvinism )

    I do like spotties , perhaps because they are a bit different.

    On an allied subject, my wife commented today that although I often bring in orchids with bars and markings across the petals etc ( think Odontoglossum, Oncidium etc ) almost no garden flowers - meaning flowers generally, which are not orchids, have any kind of marking. They are usually a single colour. I did finally think of Foxgloves ( Digitalis sp.) and Tigridia (Liliaciae) but after that I was stumped. I wonder why ? Maybe its because some orchids are trying to attract a particular insect, whereas most garden flowers are happy with any old bee etc ?

    Jan, that is lost in history. The cross was registered by H J Veitch in 1863. He was a British horticulturist

    Way back, the Register of Orchid Hybrids was one kept by one of the bigger (UK and Belgian) orchid nurseries - Fred Sander ( aka The Orchid King ). That firm went under shortly after World War 2 ( I was going to say the 39-45 war, but for some of our allies it was perhaps the 41-45, or was Pearl Harbour 42 ? ). Whatever, the Register was kept going, I think by a grandson of the original Fred Sander (David Sander) who I remember well. At some point before he died and his firm, in turn, went under, the RHS took over the Register.
    Quite a few of the original crosses were registered without entering the parents names , for possibly several reasons. Late, registration was refused if they were not provided, with a few special exceptions connected with CITES.

    I went a searching and found a scanned book,Hortus Veitchii, about Veitch and sons. It listed early hybrids and it referenced this one. It was named in compliment of The Dutchess of Brabant, afterwards to be Queen of the Belgians. That must have been Marie Henriette of Austria (Marie Henriette Anne; 23 August 1836 – 19 September 1902) was the queen consort of King Leopold II of Belgium. She became queen in 1865.

    Love it!! This looks very similar to Catt amethystoglossa... one which I'd love to own but have waited to buy because the plant gets so tall... do you mind telling me how big this one gets? If it's not too tall, it might be a good substitute for the amethystoglossa....

    Geoff to go back even further than Fred Sander, in 1871 first known list of orchid hybrids was published by F.W.Burbidge listing 17 hybrids. From 1871 onwards, Gardener's Chronicle begins to list all new orchid hybrids. In 1891. Robert Rolfe begins to publish The Orchid Review, and commenced listing new orchid hybrids with the first issue. In 1906 The first Sander's list of orchid hybrids appears. It was in 1960 that the RHS took over registration.
