    Default Laelia lucasiana

    This has been in bloom all summer & more buds to go.Sorry I didn't take a picture sooner as the focal one in this shot has a few dings so isn't perfect I love the rupiculous laelias as they are a challenge (for me at least).

    What a fabulous color combination! I love the yellow lip on the purple background! (I know, we always ask this don't we...) Does it have a fragrance? I've started sticking my nose into everything lately. Actually, my Sharry Baby is finally coming into bloom and just this morning I got a very faint whiff. Yum! But I digress...as usual...

    Martha, I got it so long ago pre 1990 from Seabreeze Orchids that's been out of business for years.I have seen it though advertised at different places since so you will just have to search I guess.
