    Default Laelia lost tag blooms

    I bought this plant last year and it had no tag on it. I just love the rose color of the flower and it blooms quite a bit. We just went through 35+ mile an hour winds so it did pretty good.

    Yes, it does have that Richard Mueller look.

    Do the flowers change color as they age?

    Well Diane, I've been watching and yes they definitely changed color. They went from a reddish pink to a purple pink. I don't know if this means anything but it is a difinite change.

    It's just really typical of the Richard Mueller crosses. I have one that goes from deep red orange to a banana yellow color.
