    Red face Bllra Marfitch 'Howard's Dream' AM/AOS

    My latest acquisition, Bllra Marfitch 'Howard's Dream'AM / AOS.

    I take one plant for "show and tell" and return with 3, I just can't help myself! But the name is fitting and I really think she's a beauty, she is deep purple, not magenta.

    Thanks! I was adjusting the spike and I heard a pop! Hope I didn't break it somewhere!

    great plant Katherine, I had one for a number of years and it bloomed for me every year with multiple spikes. I got into miniature or compact plants and so Howards Dream was given away, the spikes got to be 3' tall. I used bamboo stakes for support .

    Thanks Bill! I saw it while I was helping a friend carry her orchids into the meeting. It went on the sale table and I grabbed it! I've learned my lesson about the "Early Bird"!
