    Well, I thought that was the one with the lovely fragrance, but when I put my nose on the flower, no smell at all. But beside it was this guy. He is the one putting on the wonderful fragrance. He only has one bloom left, but it is very strong. He opened very green and has turned into a lovely pale yellow.

    Here he is: (Lc. Hausermann Gala x BLc. Hausermann Jade) "Boonserm"

    Not that I know of, Hoa. We got this orchid many years ago. The tag is plain and only reads: LC. George Baldwin

    Cheers!

    Is the color accurate, BD? Your George Baldwin is a lovely shade of pink, without the more characteristic magenta-purple.

    I love the second one and the fact that it is fragrant is a huge Plus.
