    Default Tis the season for Canhamianas...

    Since other folks were showing off theirs, I decided to post mine. It is C. mossiae x L. purpurata 'Suave'. This is my second blooming with this plant, and it has another sheath in bud.

    Default Beautiful!

    So beautiful Diane. Such bold coloration. Most of the canhamianas I've seen are no where NEAR as brightly colored.

    thanks all. The deepness of the color comes from the 'Suave' cultivar. And I love the picotee on the lip. Yep, thats a real picotee - not just a camera illusion. It just sets it off so well.
