    Default Blc Chyng Guu Swan 'Ruby Lip'

    Not the most vigorous of growers, this semi-alba is quite attractive when it blooms. The flowers are medium size 5 1/2 inches (14 cm) across and the tips of the petals and sepals are marked with a thin 1/2 inch dark pink line.

    Very attractive.
    I have to get some of this more modern semi-alba hybrids too.
    Shape, colors and the little splash are making it very interesting for me.

    I never cared much for cattleyas and their kin. Now, I'm beginning to be a convert. And this is Yew Sung's fault.
