    Default A cross a friend made

    One of my favorites, though I wish it was more floriferous. Its a hard one to take an accurate pic of ... color-wise it falls in the "art shades" category.



    The lip is quite vibrantly colored.

    Was afraid you'd ask ......... be nice if it ever gets named to go for something shorter.

    Slc Charming Jewel x [C harrisoniana x C Leah Addis]

    Ironically, the buddy of mine who made the cross was never very impressed with it.

    No updates on the naming, unfortunately. The harrisoniana x Leah Addis hasn't been named yet, let alone the offspring of this cross.

    Still, a pretty flower!
