    Default Collierara Snow Ballet

    This (I have discovered) has had a name change. When I got it, it was tagged Gerberara Snow Ballet ( Caulaelia Snowflake X Brassolaelia Rich. Mueller)
    Lovely fragrance. Hope you like it.


    The name of this Orchid is Iwanagara Apple Blossom. I goofed up, Hope BD will see this and change the name for me.

    Angela it is different than the one I had. Are you sure on ID. It looks more like Caulaelia Snowflake (laelia albida x caularthron bicornatum) . Richard Mueller normally adds some spotting and a lip that is more tubular.

    It is really lovely, Angela - I'm learning to treasure these caularthon bicornutum hybrids. I tend to agree with Ron, however, that it doesn't seem to exhibit any Mueller traits. It make be a cross of Snowflake and something else, though, since the blooms are held differently. Great find! I'm sure you'll get the id.

    I am happy that you spotted this error. Don't know where my old tired brain was when I did that post.
    The flower posted is Iwanagara Apple Blossom.


    I am now attaching a photo of Collierara Snow Ballet

    I am so sorry for the mix up and I am happy that it was spotted.

    That is absolutely beautiful, Angela! I want one! If you have a chance, could you pm me with where you got it! Just gorgeous - you have an amazing collection going on there - and I almost just bought an Apple Blossom - maybe I shall, now that I've seen yours.
