    Default Blc. Shinfong 'Unique'

    This one kind of gets ridiculous in the ruffle department. I thought they were flatter last time but maybe just my imagination. Thanks for looking!

    Agree with Jack! Great color on this one. I don't mind the ruffled edges!

    Fluffy ruffles for sure. Pretty good depth of color too.

    There is no hybrid named Blc. (Rlc.) Shinfong though, but there is a Shinfong Unique of the purple floof with yellow eyes persuasion, so I'm pretty sure there should be no single quotes in there.

    Thanks everyone! Just copying the tag Kirk. I've pretty much given up on properly ID'ing hybrid Catt. alliance.

    I'm with you on that Chris!

    It is rather interesting to me that growers put such poor tag info out for so many, not only Catts, orchids. Sometimes it seems like a crap shoot to even know if you can believe the tag.

    I know other plants, roses for example, have patents that are supposed to stop others from reproducing them for sales purposes. Don't know if that can aslo apply to orchids varieties. Perhaps some growers are trying to hide infringements? Hope someone with more knowledge could chime in.
