    Default A parade of Dendrobes...(Warning lot of pics)

    well, down here yonder south... we are very much looking forward to spring...

    and as a start to what we have to look forward to, I give you these Aussie beauties....

    1. Dendrobium Aussie Charm x (Dot Sheen x Aussie Wow)


    this is the first blooming of this plant which I've had for a few years bought as a seedling... every month I check RHS listing to see if I could shorten the name... but alas...

    2. Dendrobium Sunstar x Hilda Poxon 'Speckles' - a recent purchase and really I am not too sure where all the speckles are...


    3. Dendrobium Lorikeet 'Red Imp' x Star of Gold 'Bathurst' - this next beauty is my favourite... bought two years ago, this is the first flush and there are a few more spikes to come...


    and finally.. or rather until the next flush...

    4. Dendrobium Kungara - another recent purchase... alas, as beautiful as she is... I couldn't get a decent photo!!!

    Great collection of dends, Tim! My fav out of this group would be the speckless, Dendrobium Sunstar x Hilda Poxon 'Speckles'. It has a really great color and shape. But then again, the Lorikeet 'Red Imp' x Star of Gold 'Bathurst' is pretty awesome too. Thanks for sharing them!

    Cheers!

    Really great plants Tim! I like the Lorikeet best (what a surprise... ha ha). I actually have both of my dendrobs in bloom/bud... I guess I should break down and post pictures of them...

    Very nice .
    Some of my Aussie Dens seem a little reluctant to flower.Others just seem to flower on & off for months.

    They are all beautiful, Tim!
    I am a fan of Aussie dendrobs, so no surprise about that! I like the Kungara the best!
    And Diane, you have dendrobs in bloom? That is shocking! Hehheheeheeeee ...

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Kungara's my fav! But they're all terrific! And what a super feeling to see blooms after a couple years of diligent growing. Well done, Tim-O!
