    Default C. Bob Betts

    This guy is such a classic! A white beauty with yellow throat and breathtaking fragrance. He's a big boy, currently struggling to get out of his 10" pot. A second set of buds has just broken their sheath.

    PS - No, this is not the flower in my avatar, that is C. Carl Hausermann

    Classic beauty, as good, if not better, than any of the modern hybrids!

    Good growing and what an excellent picture Diane!

    Oh my, that is gorgeous and does it ever bring back memories. I wore a single white orchid just like yours on my wedding day 55 years ago!
