    Default Cymbidium Orchid Parade ID Challenge!

    Hi all, I inherited 40 Cymbidiums which have been passed down in the family from my Grandmother, through my Aunt to me. I reported the very neglected plants, and have been awarded with many fine blooms to which where I can, I would love to attach some names. Can you help?

    The fourth one looks a bit like Cym Summer Pearl, but I'm not sure. Does it have a fragrance at all?

    Sorry I can't help you more than that. They are lovely.
