    It took a long time but this one has flowered for the first time, grown from flask. The colour on the lip is far brighter pink but that is the best I am able to achieve with my camera. Needless to say I am very pleased.

    Very heavy spotting. Looks like a good-sized flower of heavy substance. Fragrant?

    Very nice. Like C. aclandiae on steroids.

    It should be Tripp Johnston though, with a t. No connection to Sarah Palin's grandson though as the cross was registered in 1991.
