I got this as a $5 NBS about 9 months ago. I guess it really likes it here - plus the fact that I repotted it immediately from a 3.5 pot that it was cracking to a nice 5" pot. It is fragrant, a semi-floral scent, especially strong when set in the sunlight. The blossoms are smaller than I expected, but then again it is a first bloom..
The colors are soooo amazing, the photo can't do it justice. It is a very deep lavender fading on the sepals and the throat into a bright green color. The green just didn't show through well on the photo. And the lip is deep, velvety magenta, with a lavender edge.
The tag reads: Blc. Golden Zelle x Blc. Oh Suzannah 'Lake View'
