    Could anyone tell me the name of this Dendrobium. The flowers, are dainty, 1inch.across, pale lilac with purple tips on edge of petal. Small purple dots on lip, with a yellow tinge inside throat. Flowers approx. twice a year. Very hardy. Sometimes 2 stems of flowers come from the top of one cane. Very much appreciate any help.

    Looks like a Kinganium to me...they are an austrailian dendrobium. I have a white variety.

    More likely your plant is Dendrobium delicatum, which is a natural hybrid (which has also been man-made) of Dendrobium kingianum and Dendrobium falcorostrum.
